Precision Teaching: Does Training by Educational Psychologist Have an Impact?
Sundhu, Rebecca; Kittles, Michelle
Educational Psychology in Practice, v32 n1 p13-23 2016
This study looked at the impact of a precision teaching training programme which was delivered by the authors to primary school staff at a range of training settings. A questionnaire was used to gather information and data were interpreted using thematic analysis. Following training, a questionnaire was sent to all the primary schools that had attended. Of the schools that returned the questionnaires all schools were using precision teaching three to five times a week. Precision teaching was being used to measure progress with a variety of key skills. The impact of the precision teaching training programme is discussed in terms of facilitating factors and barriers to implementation. Implications for future research are also considered.
