Collaborative Teachback with a Statistical Cognitive Tool: A Formative Evaluation.
Bain, John D.; Mavor, Ken
A learning environment is described in which students collaborate in small groups to develop screen movies in which they use a statistical cognitive tool to interpret published research and to demonstrate their understanding of least squares statistical concepts. Evaluation data are reported, which indicate that, although some groups thrive in this environment, others struggle to cope. Enhancements are proposed based on the outcome of the evaluation. Highlights include: the computer program; the course context; the learning process; the intended learning outcomes; the evaluation; and future development. (Contains 20 references and 3 tables.)
