The Effects of Diagnostic Testing as an Organizing Feedback Mechanism on the Achievement of First Year College Biology Students.
Waugh, Michael L.
This document presents achievement results of a study conducted to determine the effects of diagnostic tests administered to provide immediate feedback and to serve an organizing function in the study of course material. Thirty-three first year college students in biology classes comprised experimental and control groups. Results from the first unit taught indicated no significant increase in student achievement. With a second unit of instruction, however, an increase in student achievement did result for those students using diagnostic organizers. (SL)
