Data Based Decision Making Plan George Washington Carver Center for Arts & Technology
Our Research “ An interactive lecture, together with small peer group problem-solving activities during the lecture would help to build up students’ own self-confidence, and would stimulate interaction between learners, and with lecturers that led to shared process of knowledge-building” (Masikunis, Panayiotidis, & Burke, 2009). “… no individual responses are shown. Each student is able to determine if his/her response is correct. If the answer is correct, this reinforces the learning. If the answer is incorrect, the student can ask for clarification or figure why the response was incorrect” (Conoley, Moore, Croom, & Flowers, 2006).
Our Research “ To be effective, however, feedback must be timely and connected to the content being learned in class – two criteria that student response systems meet” (Ferriter, 2009). “ The treatment group (handheld electronic responders) had a mean achievement score on the test of 89.98 on a 100-point scale. The comparison group (traditional verbal feedback) had a mean score of 84.41 on a 100-point maximum test” (Conoley, Moore, Croom, & Flowers, 2006).
Our Research “ To have such meaningful data so quickly may help instructors to readily identify weaker students early in the semester so that interventions can be made in a timely fashion” (Lucas, 2009).
