The questionnaire was to serve two purposes: First, it was to show me whether my general, fundamental hypothesis held water: That Danish teachers do not use dedicated ICT programs in their feedback practices to any major degree. Secondly, I needed some kind of basis for selecting three teachers that I could work on with in the project.
It turned out that almost 300 teachers ended up answering my questions 👍. Not only did they answer, they also very kindly provided me with tons of free text answers that have helped me understand their motives, rationales, and ways of working a little better. Thank you very much, all who answered! To the best of my knowledge, no one has ever asked Danish teachers these questions before AND gotten so many answers.
I have a feeling that one reason why teachers bothered to spend time on giving me so much to work with could be that marking papers is something that teachers do alone, often at night/at home/dreading "the pile" of papers... This is not necessarily something that teachers discuss a lot, or something where they share their practices.
This might also provide one explanation for why one third of the responding teachers would like to receive news from the project - and why another third would actually be interested in being involved in the project in some way.
However, I have now selected the three teachers I need. I owe great thanks to those of you who volunteered, but I had to take some practical precautions in order not to spend too much time "on the road", but I spoke to quite few of you. 😄
I hope to be able to write a little something on the questionnaire results before I finish my entire project...
