Students split into two groups Data collected over a unit of study No difference in achievement Differences in attitudes
Purpose Justification of Study Research Questions Background Role of Feedback Online Assessment Programs Data Collection Set up Methods Tools
Findings Test results Homework completion rate Survey results Conclusions Textbook vs. online homework Plan of Action Effects on students Effect on teacher
Likelihood of completing assignments Impact of improved feedback on achievement Access to technology needed
Immediate feedback may increase retention of correct response. Detailed feedback increases understanding more than limited feedback.
Current research focus is on intro level college courses Various studies range from finding no effect to a positive effect Most positive effects occur when compared to no homework
Chemistry 3 periods 1 control = 17 2 experimental = th & 11 th grade Physics 2 periods 1 control = 10 1experimental = th & 12 th grade Total Control = 27 students Total Experimental = 34 students
