Introduction to Precision Learning
Precision teaching represents a set of tools for measuring and displaying learning and performance. In precision teaching, the performance of students is timed, counted and recorded on their individual Standard Celeration Chart (SCC). Standard Celeration Chart shows a number of features of a student performance:
- Frequency of behaviors 学习的频率
- Changes in the frequency of behaviors 频率的改变
- Logarithmic growth of learning 学习上的进步
By seeing the changes in performance in real time, the learner behavior is reinforced what he has just learned. The Precision Teaching Module is a method of teaching participants through active learning not just exposure by reading or rote memorization.
Participants are encouraged to guess the answers to questions. They get immediate feedback whether or not they had the correct answer. When participants learn the correct answers and retake the test, they get more items right and go faster. After their rate no longer increases, they should go higher in the workshop sequence. This will establish automatic answering so that there is no decision time required.
In order to understand complex decision making, thought and other forms of behavior, it is necessary to understand simpler forms without having to ponder them. Hence, this workshop will lead a participant to answer automatically the less difficult questions first before going on to the more difficult ones.
