Proposal Abstract

This session will discuss the results of a mixed method research study designed to determine the effectiveness of the revised ticket to retention strategy for student retention of concepts and students' perspectives of this strategy. While similar to other end-of-class strategies, our strategy is unique because the questions target specific learning objectives by requiring students to write the concepts, verbalize the concept to two students, compare and contrast answers, and listen to two students verbalize the concept. Participants included two education professors and their students over two 4-week summer courses and a 15-week semester course. We will share the results of the study which indicated that students, when the revised ticket to retention is employed, recall a large percentage of information. Attendees will participate in a ticket to retention activity and learn about recommendations for implementing this strategy when teaching in a classroom setting.
