Definition: Information that nourishes learning, meaning it should equip the receiver to take action.
What Feedback Isn’t:
- Comments on every assignment
- About the person
- Always from the teacher
- About getting the right answer
What Makes Quality Feedback?
- Feedback that follows the Goldilocks Principle: Just for me, just in time, and just enough.
- Feedback that answers the questions:
- Where am I going?
- How am I going/doing?
- Where to next?
- Feedback is about progress rather than achievement.
- Feedback that is differentiated for different learners, depending on where they are in their learning process (surface level, deep level).
- Feedback that is balanced among teacher, peers and self.
- Feedback focuses on understanding a concept or skill.
