Davis, Darrel R.
International Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, v7 n2 Article 15 Jul 2013
This study examined the performance differences in cognitive and affective outcomes between students who completed a short-term service-learning experience and students who watched a video exemplar of the task. Performance measures were obtained via a written reflection paper that contained both cognitive and affective components. Results revealed no significant differences on cognitive outcomes and significant differences on affective outcomes. The results were consistent when academic level and overall course performance were controlled. Implications and future research directions are discussed.
