The Effects of Computer-Assisted Feedback Strategies in Technology Education: A Comparison of Learning Outcomes
Adams, Ruifang Hope; Strickland, Jane
Journal of Educational Technology Systems, v40 n2 p211-223 Dec 2011
This study investigated the effects of computer-assisted feedback strategies that have been utilized by university students in a technology education curriculum. Specifically, the study examined the effectiveness of the computer-assisted feedback strategy "Knowledge of Response feedback" (KOR), and the "Knowledge of Correct Responses feedback" (KCR) strategy, and compared them with "No feedback" (NR) on students' learning outcomes in technology education. Three intact classes were assigned to one of three conditions: KOR, KCR, or NR (control group). The dependent measure consisted of a 40-item learning outcome test. Learning outcome pretest and posttest data were obtained through the web-based surveys during a 4-week period of instruction. Results showed that using computer-assisted feedback of KOR or KCR in practice exercises as a supplemental strategy is as effective as NR in practice exercises. Technology education instruction with computer-assisted feedback strategies could be a viable option for learning in a favorable direction. (Contains 5 tables.)
