Effective Feedback

The litmus test for effective feedback is when a student is able to answer:

  1. Where am I going?
  2. Where am I in the learning?
  3. What do I need to learn next?

7 Principles of good feedback:

  1. It clarifies what good performance is (goals, criteria, expected standards).
  2. It facilitates development of self-assessment in learning.
  3. It provides high quality information to students about their learning.
  4. It encourages teacher and peer dialogue around learning.
  5. It encourages positive motivational beliefs and self-esteem.
  6. It provides opportunity to close the gap between current and desired performance.
  7. It provides information to the teacher  that can be used to help shape teaching.
