Analysis of Learners Attitude towards Teachers Feedback on Errors in Written Work
Abstract: The paper is an attempt to study the attitudes of secondary school students towards feedback offered by teacher on errors in written work. It is assumed that remarks by teacher on notebook have significant potential to generate substance of attitude. Investigator constructed and standardized attitude measure using cluster analysis method and discovered five dimensions of the measure namely- Likes & Dislike about Feedback, Feelings and Feedback, Intentions and Feedback, Methods of Feedback and Weightage of Feedback. Percentage analysis revealed that dimensions of the measure do not differed significantly, overlap in terms of nature, but still maintain independent existence by virtue of reliability and validity parameters. Comparative analysis using t-test revealed that students do not differed significantly on attitudes variation of gender and locality, but significantly differ in respect of type of school and level of performance. Private school students supposedly from rich families and above average performers are more critical of teachers remarks on note book. Study aimed at highlighting importance of method, quality, timing and means of feedback offered by teacher on students notebooks.
