    1. 1. Student Response Systems Critique #2 Christopher Craft AEET/EDET 780 May 27, 2007 www.christophercraft.com
    2. 2. Fitch, J. L. (2004). Student feedback in the college classroom: A technology solution. Educational Technology Research and Development, 52(1), 71-77.
    3. 3. one-sided presentations are no longer enough Student response systems can promote interaction This article will detail the results from a pilot study implementing cps remotes Introduction
    4. 4. Interactive learning “[heightens] student interest and [improves] higher cognitive learning “ interaction may be the most important factor” interaction
    5. 5. Transmission model versus constructivist model versus interactionist [sic] model “ the interactionist model suggests that learning is the result of interaction between the learner and the learner’s environment”. interaction
    6. 6. Interaction shown to be important in distance learning settings (see citation Egbert & Thomas 2001 and King & doerfert 1996) interaction
    7. 7. “ it can be concluded that there is convincing evidence that interactivity is a critical part of any form of technology-based learning” interaction
    8. 8. “ much of higher education, however, is still classroom based” interaction
    9. 9. The response system used in this study is learnstar, but there are others learnstar
    10. 10. Study done at the auburn university department of communication disorders methodology
    11. 11. System tested in two courses CMDS 3400 – the speech and hearing mechanism (“heavy content course” 31 students, typically 20-25 years old methodology
    12. 12. System tested in two courses Cmds 2500 – communication disorders in society (“course for nonmajors”) 39 students, “wider age range” methodology
    13. 13. The article does not indicate exactly how long the implementation was, so we will assume it was only for one semester methodology
    14. 14. Cmds 3400 – 24/31 students completed the survey Cmds 2500 – 31/39 students completed the survey results
    15. 15. results
    16. 16. results
    17. 17. Students did not prepare more for class knowing learnstar would be used They were told that grades did not count since it was a pilot study results
    18. 18. “ the activity promotes focus” “ material that needs to be clarified is quickly identified” Instructor comments
    19. 19. “ students enjoy it” “ students are likely to get to class on time” Instructor comments
    20. 20. Must strike balance for timed questions “ no statistical comparison was made with previous classes” conclusion
    21. 21. Longer implementation needed Better ratio of completed surveys Better description of test subjects Control group comparison critique
