Applause as an achievement‐based reward during a computerised self‐assessment test

Applause as an achievement‐based reward during a computerised self‐assessment test Affective feedback during a self‐assessment test could help induce the learner to an optimal emotional state regarding the learning material. However, there is a lack of experimental evidence concerning the influence of affective feedback during a self‐assessment test. This paper is a step towards this direction. The effect of achievement‐based reward feedback on students' state and trait anxiety was examined. Ninety‐two students participated in an experiment. Half of these students received an applause sound after a correct answer to a question. Results highlight gender differences concerning this emotional type of feedback. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png British Journal of Educational Technology Wiley

Abstract

Affective feedback during a self‐assessment test could help induce the learner to an optimal emotional state regarding the learning material. However, there is a lack of experimental evidence concerning the influence of affective feedback during a self‐assessment test. This paper is a step towards this direction. The effect of achievement‐based reward feedback on students' state and trait anxiety was examined. Ninety‐two students participated in an experiment. Half of these students received an applause sound after a correct answer to a question. Results highlight gender differences concerning this emotional type of feedback.
