Effects of Various Feedback Media on Psychomotor Achievement.
Meers, Gary D.
The purpose of this study was to ascertain whether or not there is a significantly different level of psychomotor achievement among students receiving three different kinds of feedback treatments: (1) evaluating their own performance with the aid of a check sheet while viewing their previous performance on video tape recording, (2) evaluating their own performance with the aid of a rating by a panel of judges while viewing their previous performance on video tape recording, and (3) viewing a video tape recording of their previous performance. A comparison of the three types of feedback treatment was made for 39 Grade 7 industrial arts students with equivalent manual dexterity scores. It was found that students who received the video tape recording plus panel rating had significantly higher levels of psychomotor achievement than did the other two feedback groups. It was concluded that students receiving qualified directive feedback of their performance will perform at a higher level of psychomotor achievement. (MF)
