The Use of Clickers in Secondary Education Math with Students with High-Incidence Disabilities
Mills, Jeremy Ryan
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, University of Kentucky
A single-subject withdrawal design paired with content quizzes was used to examine the effect of clickers on three dependent variables (student engagement, math quiz scores, and inappropriate behavior) with students diagnosed with high-incidence disabilities in a secondary grade level resource math class and a secondary grade level inclusive math class. After each condition, a quiz that covered that condition's content was given to each participant. The study began with a pre-test and ended with a post-test. After the posttest, all participants were given a self-report survey rating their personal likes or dislikes with the use of clickers. Analysis of the results suggested that there was no relationship between the use of clickers and inappropriate behavior and quiz scores, yet there was a functional relationship between the use of clickers and student participation. Likewise, student enjoyment increased with the use of clickers. [The dissertation citations contained here are published with the permission of ProQuest LLC.
