Exploring Radiologic Technology Students' Perception of Feedback Models: An Action Research Project
Department of Applied Studies
This action research project explores the use of three feedback models in a real-world radiologic technology clinical setting. The Pendleton’s Rules model, the One-Minute Preceptor model, and the SET-GO model were utilized to provide feedback to radiologic technology students following examinations/procedures in the clinical setting. Details about the feedback models as well as the importance of feedback, characteristics of effective feedback, and barriers to feedback are described. Following each exam/procedure, participants completed anonymous, online surveys regarding each model. The quantitative and qualitative results were used to draw conclusions about best feedback practices for feedback in the clinical setting. Findings suggest that different feedback models may be better suited for differing levels of educational performance. The One-Minute Preceptor model was conveyed to be most favored overall by study participants. This research aided in my understanding of feedback practices and will continue to foster growth within my teaching practices moving forward.
