Video with Material Science Students use of PeLe, Trondheim

2012-04-17

The material science course at HiST is drawing to an end, and approx. 60 students participated in the final testing of the Peer Learning Assessment System (PeLe) on April 17, 2012. They used the system to solve their 11th compulsory assignment which comprised 8 questions. During the first half of the assignment, the students solved their tasks and reported the answers by using their mobile devices, while Dr. Bergh used the next 30 minutes (second part) to provide immediate feedback to each task.




Video from the event:

 

Immediately after the completion of the test, the lecturer, Dr. Roger Bergh, received an overview of the students’ responses. During the next 30 minutes he was able to provide immediate and targeted feedback to the various tasks. Approx. 70-75% of the students managed to solve the first 6 tasks, which was enough to provide a verification of the correct answer. An example is shown in the two pictures below. 

  

However, only 56% of the students managed to solve task 7 correctly, and were then offered a chance to change their answers. Dr. Bergh gave them one minute to discuss the topic once more, and then to re-vote by using the Student Response System. The pictures below highlight the effect of the peer learning process. After the brief second chance discussion, 77% of the students managed to solve task 7.

  

 

The pictures show the results after the first voting (left hand side) and the after the peer learning process (right hand side).  PeLe is currently developed in the ongoing KA3-ICT project Done-IT.
