An Assessment of Feedback Procedures and Information Provided to Instructors within Computer Managed Learning Environments--Implications for Instruction and Software Redesign.
Kotesky, Arturo A.
Feedback procedures and information provided to instructors within computer managed learning environments were assessed to determine current usefulness and meaningfulness to users, and to present the design of a different instructor feedback instrument. Kaufman's system model was applied to accomplish the needs assessment phase of the study; and two sets of information were gathered: data from two questionnaires to 44 faculty members using computer managed instruction (CMI) strategies; and survey data from 115 institutions using CMI systems. Results led to the design of a feedback report to the instructor, structured by useful and relevant information content and coherent format. Training areas for instructors using feedback information from CMI systems were suggested, recommendations were given for the development of a CMI system user manual, and the importance of implementing appropriate feedback delivery mechanisms was emphasized. Relationships were also indicated between faculty members' characteristics and actual involvement with CMI learning environments. (Author/CMV)
