Pre-Service Teachers' Views: How Did E-Feedback through Assessment Facilitate Their Learning?
Chang, Ni
Journal of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, v11 n2 p16-33 Apr 2011
This survey study was intended to explore whether or not students supported the way a university course instructor provided timely and detailed e-feedback directly onto their online assignments and how the e-feedback facilitated their learning. Twenty pre-service teachers, who had experienced the process, participated in the study. The data were analyzed quantitatively and qualitatively to answer the research questions. The findings indicate that the majority of students favored the instructor's provision of e-feedback. From their perspectives, the feedback was helpful, immediate, and convenient, allowing them to know whether they were "on the right track", encouraged them to think, enhanced their learning through reflections and corrections, and promoted their time management and writing skills. Implications of the study and suggestions for further research are provided at the conclusion of this report. (Contains 5 tables.)
