Given the robust nature of learning sciences research, this website is best viewed on tablets and computers. A small screen experience is coming in the future.
On June 22, 2021, we will launch updated strategies for the Math PK-2 model, as well as additional updates to the Navigator that highlight equity, SEL, and culturally responsive teaching. To learn more, visit our Site Updates (available in the "About" menu at the top of any page).
Analyzing errors is especially beneficial in helping learners develop a Learner Mindset and critical thinking skills, which are a component of Problem Solving. Studying their own errors can help learners see when they have used incorrect strategies or procedures, which is particularly important in strengthening Numeracy and supporting English language learners. Error analysis can also help learners identify their misconceptions, build accurate understanding, and support Long-term Memory.
Use It In Your Learning Environment
When implementing error analysis, it is important to note that negative Emotions may be elicited in some adults based on Adverse Experiences or low emotional stability. There is also a direct, negative association between fear and learning from errors, so providing additional support such as building trusting relationships in the learning environment and emphasizing growth mindset feedback is beneficial. Adult learners can be sensitive to errors being identified, so the process is most beneficial when it is facilitative rather than authoritative. Providing employees with growth mindset training can help them develop a positive and constructive view of errors as learning opportunities. The greater the Motivation, the more likely it is that adults will learn from errors.
Edtech products can build in scaffolded feedback to take advantage of the benefits of retrieval practice by providing incremental hints until the correct answer can be self-generated. Scaffolded feedback supports Long-term Memory and can mitigate the effects of negative emotions.
The impact of error analysis changes as adults age and immediate feedback is essential for correcting both memory and Metacognitive errors. Errors made in supportive, conceptually relevant learning paradigms can be effectively overwritten by older adults.
When learners provide constructive feedback on each other's work, they reflect on their own understanding, learn to give relevant suggestions, receive specific ways to improve, and engage in Metacognition.
Effective note-taking during lectures or reading directs learners' Attention to the relevant information, helping them identify key concepts, understand links between ideas and retain information better in their Long-term Memory.
The opportunity to observe peers or experts in action or participate in shadowing can provide a unique and authentic learning experience that often involves questioning, metacognitive thinking, and Problem Solving while providing Social Supports.
