Student Expectations, Achievement and Feedback, a Study of Student Self-Assessment in the General Education Computer Course
Many colleges and universities require a computer applications course as part of their general education curriculum. This computer application course varies in subject matter from campus to campus, from a concepts-oriented course to a hands-on applications course. This paper studies the difference in knowledge self-assessment and grade estimation between sections that are exclusively for freshman Business Administration majors and sections that are composed of upper-class non-business majors. The null hypothesis is that there is no difference in knowledge assessment or grade estimation between the two groups as measured by a self-assessment instrument. This paper presents the statistical analysis and summary of the findings, and discusses implications of the research.
