Abstract

This study was undertaken to determine the elementary mathematics student teachers’ perceptions related to feedback behaviors performed by in service elementary mathematics teachers within the scope of “School Experience” course. This study was carried out by using the survey method. As data collection tool, a likert type questionnaire which consists of two sections was used. This questionnaire was administered to 82 senior mathematics student teachers from Karadeniz Technical University, Fatih Faculty of Education, Department of Elementary Mathematics Education in 2008–2009 education terms in Trabzon, Turkey. After responses given by student teachers to the questionnaire form were marked, these data were analyzed by using the statistical package SPSS. At the end of the study, it was found that positive feedback behaviors were given only by a few teachers from the point of student teachers views. Based on the findings of the study, some suggestions about the potential of feedback in teaching-learning process were given both mathematics student teachers and in service mathematics teachers.
