Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate two modes of student response to course quizzes; Scantron sheets, which provide students with delayed feedback, and Immediate Feedback Assessment Technique (IF-AT) cards, which provide students with immediate feedback regarding the accuracy of their responses. Results indicated no difference in knowledge gained between students using Scantron or IF-AT cards, but did display a difference in student perceptions regarding the quiz response formats. Students using the IF-AT cards were more positive in their attitudes toward their quiz response method than were students in the Scantron group, indicating they liked the immediate feedback, opportunities for content learning, correction of misconceptions, and increased confidence they received while taking the quizzes. We recommend instructors consider using IF-AT cards when seeking methods to improve student satisfaction of a course, as they improved student perceptions without negatively impacting student learning.
