Troubleshooting Formative Feedback in P³ (Projects and Practices in Physics)
written by Paul W. Irving, Vashti Sawtelle, and Marcos D. Caballero
An important focus of the projects and practices in physics (P3) classroom at Michigan State University (MSU) is the development of scientific practices. However, it is very difficult for students to learn scientific practices such as communicating scientific information or constructive argumentation without feedback based on social interactions involving these practices. In the P3 class week, students are provided with written feedback based on observations by an instructor that is aimed at guiding the students in the appropriation of scientific practices. Through interviews, we examine student's reflections on their interpretation of the purpose of the feedback and what effect if any it had on their participation. By understanding how students respond to certain feedback, we can operationalize and improve the feedback that we give to students.
