The Use of immediate feedback system in college classrooms: a multiple case study

İslim, Ömer Faruk
The purpose of this study is to investigate the usage of a student response system, which was designed in line with the needs and suggestions of faculty members, in college classrooms in order to facilitate teaching and learning process. For this purpose a prototype system was designed, developed, and then piloted by four faculty members. The prototype was redesigned based on the input from these four faculty members. The actual data of the study were collected from three different classes of three different departments during the spring semester of 2012-2013 academic year. Data about the ways of using the system, the purposes of using the system, expectations from the system, efficiency of the system, and effects of the system on the classroom climate and learning of the students were collected. Interviews were the main data source of the study. Three repetitive interviews were conducted with three faculty members, and nineteen students from three departments. The results of the study showed that the system was used for several purposes such as feedback, discussion, evaluation, motivation, active participation, and class preparation. Furthermore, the system had several advantages for both students and faculty members such as providing feedback, increasing student-student and student-instructor interaction, motivating students and faculty members, ease of use, and free of cost. Lastly, the results of the study revealed the improvement and utilization suggestions of faculty members and students.
