Individualizing Instructional Feedback: A Comparison of Feedback Modes in University Classes.
Moore, Gary E.
This study compared two methods of providing individualized feedback on written assignments. Eighty-one students were randomly assigned to one of the two treatment groups--audiotape feedback or written feedback--for a one semester university course. The amount of faculty time required for implementation, the effects of such feedback on student achievement, and the reaction of students to each type of feedback were compared. Findings indicate that: (1) the students who received the audio feedback were more pleased with it than were those who received the written feedback; (2) slightly less time was required to provide audio feedback than written feedback; and (3) there was no difference in student achievement as determined by the first grade in the course according to the type of feedback received.
