Abstract

Material retention, test anxiety levels and student enjoyment were improved by using the Immediate Feedback Assessment Technique (IF_AT) in a freshman mathematics class for non technical majors. Weekly quizzes were given using the IF-AT scratch cards which provide immediate feedback about the accuracy of their answer and give them the opportunity to try again if they selected the wrong answer. The success of the study was assessed though grade comparison as well as student surveys. The results show an obvious increase in the performances of the students and their material retention and a very positive impact on their test anxiety.
