A Review of Literature on Formative Evaluation of Teachers through Mid-Term Student Feedback and How the Reiser and Dick Instructional Planning Model Can Enhance This Feedback.
Hampton, Scott E.
Research has shown that student mid-term feedback has significantly increased subsequent ratings of teacher effectiveness, student achievement, and student attitudes when the feedback results were accompanied by expert consultation. A gap in the literature is an instrument intended to provide specific feedback on systematic planning and delivery of instructional activities that can enhance teaching along with student learning, and motivation. Specific feedback related to the Reiser and Dick Instructional Planning Model (1996) can fill this gap. Following a literature review, this paper proposes a study to examine the effect of mid-term student feedback and consultation related to the Reiser and Dick Model on teacher behaviors, student learning and motivation. The independent variable is mid-term student ratings feedback and consultation related to teacher utilization of the learning activities (2 levels). The dependent measures will assess the impact of the intervention on teacher systematic instruction behaviors through observations, interviews and surveys; student learning as measured by final exam scores on a common exam; and student motivation through surveys. Based on teacher interviews and surveys, the study will also address the utility of the Reiser and Dick model for Teacher Assistants. Appendices include: a comparison chart of feedback studies; Reiser and Dick Instructional Activities link to Gagne and Learning Theory; overview of the problem statement (The Effect of Student Ratings of Systematic Instruction on Teaching, Learning, and Motivation); instructional activities feedback form (Florida State University Evaluation Services); consultation interview protocol; classroom observation checklist; Keller's Course Interest Survey (Florida State University Evaluation Services); and an overview of procedure.
