In a situation where teachers provide students with positive instruction based feedback studies have shown that this has a positive effect on student motivation (Fluckinger, Vigil, Pasco, Danielson, 2010; Harachkiewicz, Adrahams, Wageman, 1987). Successful forms of feedback must be identified and be accessible to teachers
I will begin collecting data at the beginning of math unit 2. I will be giving students written instruction based feedback, verbal instruction based feedback and measuring the effects on student motivation. I believe with a clear plan to utilize instruction based feedback I will see an increase in student motivation. I will collect evidence to measure student motivation at the beginning, throughout, and at the end of math unit two. I will be collecting qualitative and quantitative data during my…
