Peer Interaction Impact on Learning Outcomes in a Secondary School Art Class
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this research project was to investigate how peer interactions impact student learning outcomes in middle and high school art classes. Many themes developed in the literature review: how peer relationships affect academic achievement, how many factors affect student achievement, benefits and validity of peer assessment, technology used in peer assessment, and how project-based learning (PBL) improves student responsibility for learning. The research findings discussed here show that peer interactions are positive and how closely linked learning outcomes are to peer interactions. In order for students to improve their work, a number of peer review activities were planned in the learning process, including the end goal of creating a Google Sites portfolio of their work to help foster the revision process. A project-based learning (PBL) activity was also planned to foster collaboration. Though all lessons in the guide weren’t fully implemented, the researcher saw changes in learning outcomes because of the peer interaction activities. The Google Sites portfolio was the most influential of the lessons because of the finality of it being available for people to see the collection of students’ works. The researcher plans on exploring peer interaction activities further in the art classroom to train students about sound critiquing habits so that they can see the benefits of peer feedback with other classmates.
