Abstract

This poster describes a project using Immediate Feedback Assessment. As part of the ISSUES-X Large Lecture Faculty Learning Community, I implemented a different assessment technique in my class. The technique is called Immediate Feedback Assessment Technique (IF-AT) and it basically consists of a scratch-off scantron form. Students scratch off the oval corresponding to their answer and if it is correct, a star will be revealed. They keep scratching until revealing the correct answer. This technique was beneficial because it corrects students’ misunderstandings by providing immediate feedback, it helps students utilize an “internal dialogue” of learning through evaluation of incorrect responses in real-time, and it offers a low-risk environment because of potential for partial credit for incorrect responses. I presented my results during a poster session at the library on February 28, 2020.
