Written feedback to students can be a key tool in helping them improve their performance. Here are some strategies for providing written feedback to students that are designed to help them learn from completing assessment tasks.
Feedback consists of information from a specific assessment performance that is ‘fed back’ to the learner, and is the important element in what is known as ‘formative’ assessment. Feedback has two basic functions. The first is to tell students how well they have addressed the assessment task, and explain the mark or grade. The second is to indicate how the work could have been improved. Click on the interactive below to find out more about how we can provide effective feedback to students.
