Effects of a Collaborative Intervention on the Quality of Preservice Teachers' Data Based Decision Making
Wilson, Jennifer A.
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, University of Minnesota
Effective teaching practices, including the ability to make data-based decisions, are necessary to close achievement gaps. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of a collaborative, data-based decision making (DBDM) intervention on the quality of preservice teachers' DBDM. Participants were 45 preservice general educators enrolled in a teacher education course required for elementary teacher licensure. An experimental group design was used to investigate the effects of the intervention on the quality of preservice general educators' data-based decisions. Participants were randomly assigned to either the experimental condition, which was a 75-min, small-group, collaborative intervention on DBDM, or the control condition. Data were analyzed using a Mann Whitney U Test. The results showed that the intervention influenced the quality of preservice teachers' DBDM and that this collaboration influenced the confidence levels of preservice teachers with regard to DBDM.
