This paper describes the introduction of a
feedback system for undergraduate students in a junior level automatic identification and data capture class. Students have highlighted that in general feedback has been slow from some classes in the curriculum. This issue has been made a continuous improvement action item as a part of the department’s ABET continuous improvement program. The implemented solution was to provide students with
personalized feedback regarding their understanding of the lecture learning objectives prior to undertaking the lab
practicals. Student performance was measured through the use of quizzes and exams to indicate whether the new system
of feedback contributed to higher scores. The author’s compared scores from Spring 2008 (control) with the Fall 2008 (experimental) semesters. The results show that for
higher order learning activities, the personalized feedback helped contribute to statistically significantly higher score.
