Group Testing as a Pedagogical Technique to Enhance Learning in Difficult Subjects
Scafe, Marla G.
American Journal of Business Education, v4 n6 p35-38 2011
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of group testing as a pedagogical technique to enhance learning in a difficult subject such as statistics. Individual test scores were compared to their group test scores for the same, identical test. A t test was used to compare the scores for 157 randomly selected MBA students enrolled in a graduate level quantitative research methods course. Results of the t test were significant (t = -14.807, p = 0.000) illustrating that individual scores were significantly lower than the group scores.
