6. Include a brief summary (purpose, benefit/intent, and methods/procedures) of your project in the
space provided below.

My name is Chelsea Roidt. I am a graduate student at Bowling Green State University and am
working towards my Master of Education in Classroom Technology under the guidance of Dr.
Savilla Banister. I have been teaching in a secondary education setting since graduating from
BGSU in 2009 with a Bachelor of Science in Education. My passion for teaching and for my
content has led me to conduct evaluation research on the effects of technology-based strategies
on English vocabulary retention in hopes to improve my own practices within my classroom.

The purpose of this action research is to determine whether an increase in technology-based


foreign language vocabulary strategies will yield a higher retention of English vocabulary words
due to the close etymologies. The data will come from pre and post-tests which measure the
growth from the beginning of a quarter to the end of a quarter. The strategies will be included in
the normal classroom routine and students will not be asked to do any extemporaneous work or
tasks. The intent of this exploration is to improve my practice as a teacher and help me draw
connections between the retention of target language vocabulary and English vocabulary. The
benefit of this exploration is that it will create a standard for a strong curriculum that supports my
program and its positive contribution to English vocabulary retention will help students on
standardized college-entry testing such as the ACT or SAT.

The measures used in this evaluation research will not interfere with student’s daily procedures.
Students are already required to take pre and post-tests at the beginning and end of a quarter,
respectively. The data collected from these tests will be used to determine if a focus on
technology-based retention strategies will yield an increase in English vocabulary retention in
comparison with previous strategies. The results will only provide conclusions about my own
curriculum and teaching strategies within my classroom and may be shared in an article.

The data collected from the pre and post-tests will not contain names, only students’ grade
levels. It will be stored on my school computer under a passcode. The only people who have
access to this account are the administrators and me; no one else has the authority to view the
documents.

Please contact Chelsea Roidt, principal evaluator, at ​cdurdel@bgsu.edu​ or Dr. Savilla Banister,
faculty advisor, at ​sbanist@bgsu.edu​ if you have any questions related to this research.

Thank you for your time and attention.

Sincerely,
Chelsea Roidt

Definitions
 
Systematic Investigation​ is a planned, step-by-step method for obtaining information. Typically it is 
repeated with multiple participants in a constant manner, but can be used with a single participant.  

Generalized knowledge​ is data and/or conclusions that are applicable to other people or places.   
Examples of activities that typically are NOT generalizable are: 
● Course evaluations, unless the results will be generalized to other institutions. 
● Class projects used to train students in research methods or where the results will only be shared 
within the course. 
● Oral histories that are designed solely to create a record of historical events. 
● Services where there is no intention to share the results beyond BGSU or any agency supporting 
the work.
