Effects of Students’ Feedback on Memory Performance for learned contents
Abstract: We investigated the effects of a feedback system that allows the students to provide feedback on the basis of two types of evaluation, namely “interesting” or “to be improved” to a teacher in real time. We compared the memory retention of two student groups: one that used the system and the other that didn’t use the system. The students who used the system had significantly higher memory retention scores than the students who did not use the system. There was a tendency that the contents provided with the “interesting” feedback were better memorized than those provided with the “to be improved” feedback, while the difference was not significant. These results clearly demonstrated that the students who used the system had significantly higher memory performance than those who did not use the system .
