Conative Feedback in Computer-Based Assessment

Computers in the Schools Volume 26, Number 3, ISSN 0738-0569


Feedback is an important educational tool that can support learning and assessment. This article describes types of conative feedback that can support the student's conation, will, volition, or motivation. Any of these types of feedback can be presented to the student before, during, or after an educational activity or a test question. Experimental results found higher student scores using conative feedback during computer-based assessment than without feedback. (Contains 1 table and 3 figures.)
