Howard, Craig D.; Barrett, Andrew F.; Frick, Theodore W. – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2010
In this quasi-experimental case study, we compared five sections of a basic undergraduate technology course. Within an asynchronous web forum, pre-service teachers wrote short critiques of websites designed by their classmates. This peer feedback was provided anonymously by students in two classes (n = 35) whereas providers and recipients of peer…

Hardre, Patricia L.; Crowson, H. Michael; Xie, Kui – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2010
Questionnaire instruments are routinely translated to digital administration systems; however, few studies have compared the differential effects of these administrative methods, and fewer yet in authentic contexts-of-use. In this study, 326 university students were randomly assigned to one of two administration conditions, paper-based (PBA) or…
