Strategies for Developing Reciprocity Between Educational Researchers and School Personnel: Providing Teachers with Feedback on Students' Computer Assisted Instruction Performance.
Fisher, Maurice D.
Teacher and administrator feedback about a study on computer-assisted instruction (CAI) is described in this report. The hypotheses, methodology, and conclusions of the overall program are briefly discussed as they pertain to the feedback aspect. (The CAI program dealt with the effects of choice situations upon the students' engagement in learning. Subjects were chosen from Grade 4 and 5 classes in a low income area elementary school.) Since the experiment depended on evaluation by observation, the researchers felt it necessary to have a good operational rapport with the school personnel. The teachers provided information that verified some of the researchers' expectations concerning the effect of social determinants on choice behavior. This report was compiled from information collected by questionnaire and discussion. (MC)
