Room 75, Morrill Hall of Agriculture

Danielle Kaminski (PhD, AFRE) will present the teaching-as-research project she completed as a FAST (Future Academic Scholar in Teaching) Fellow. 

Title: Unit Quiz Submission Time’s Relationship to Course Grades in A Flipped Classroom 

Abstract: Whereas significant prior research has concentrated on the frequency of assessment, this project explores the relationship between assessment schedules, and content presentation and additional assessment grades. Students were allowed to submit online quizzes before or after class in an upper-level course using a flipped learning design. By (1) estimating whether the submission time of a quiz before or after class relates to students’ grade on that quiz (2) estimating grade differentials on in-class assignments of students who complete the corresponding unit quiz before versus after class, and (3) estimating grade differentials on cumulative assessments (midterm and final exams, and overall course grades) of students who complete quizzes more often before versus after class, this project assists instructors of flipped courses in determining assessment deadlines. 

In addition to learning about the specific project described above, this will also be a great opportunity to learn about flipped classrooms, conducting teaching-as-research (TAR) projects, and/or the FAST Fellowship for graduate students at MSU during the Q&A session.
