Proposal Title

Use of Classroom Assessment Techniques in the Online Classroom as it Correlates to Increased Participation

Proposal Abstract

Measuring student success is a top priority to ensure the best possible student outcomes. The objective of this study was to investigate whether classroom assessment techniques (CATs) specifically KWLs, which is the acronym for what you know, what you want to know, and what you learned increase student participation. The significance is if instructors can induce a higher level of participation which could result in better student outcome levels and retention. The study was completed by comparing classes that used KWLs with those that did not use KWLs to gauge if participation increases in a classroom with KWLs. The results displayed that there was a significant increase in classrooms that used KWLs. Further research would need to be conducted into the extent of the increased participation in student learning, student outcomes, and student retention.
