Assessing the Impact of “Open Pedagogy” on Student Skills Mastery in First-Year Composition

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session presents the results of a 2016 classroom research study assessing the impact of open pedagogy on student skills mastery in a first-year English Composition course at a community college in the United States. Ninety-two students in five sections used the same free OER course materials, but two sections were given traditional assignments (i.e. formal essays and grammar exercises) and the other three sections were given "open" assignments that involved designing and remixing open resources. Assignment results and other course metrics used to investigate the impact on student skills mastery yielded no statistically significant differences in performance between the student groups, which suggests that there may be no harm in shifting away from the traditional “disposable” assignment.

Participants will get a detailed overview of the study's design, implementation, and results, as well as the opportunity to discuss how research in the impact of open pedagogy might be best designed.
