The Effects of Cooperative Learning and Feedback on E-Learning in Statistics
Krause, Ulrike-Marie; Stark, Robin; Mandl, Heinz
Learning and Instruction, v19 n2 p158-170 Apr 2009
This study examined whether cooperative learning and feedback facilitate situated, example-based e-learning in the field of statistics. The factors "social context" (individual vs. cooperative) and "feedback intervention" (available vs. not available) were varied; participants were 137 university students. Results showed that the feedback intervention clearly supported learning. Feedback proved especially beneficial for students with little prior knowledge. Cooperation did not promote learning outcomes; however, group performance in the learning phase was superior to individual performance. Also, cooperative learning enhanced perceived performance and perceived competence. Probably, collective efficacy had a halo effect on self-efficacy. (Contains 6 tables and 1 figure.)
