Feedback - A Teachers Desk Guide!
What is Feedback?
“Feedback is the foundation to any learning. It is feedback which allows a student to progress and improve their learning.” (Churchill, 2011, p. 419)
“Feedback is an opportunity for students to identify strengths and possible improvements in their work. It focuses on a student’s achievement of overall expectations and promotes a culture of school success.” (Queensland Studies Authority, 2008)
Feedback is equally vital in schooling and performs a variety of functions including recognising, correcting, encouraging, challenging and improving student performance.
Different Types of Feedback
There are many types of feedback which include oral discussion with class, groups or individual students, written annotations, examples of good responses and peer evaluation. (New South Wales Government)
Challenges Associated with Curriculum Approach
"Assessment alone will not contribute to improved learning. It is what teachers and students do with assessment and other available information that makes a difference.” (Queensland Studies Authority, 2013)
Formative and Self Assessment
Creating a Positive Feedback Culture
Useful Links and Resources
Feedback: Annotations (Mode: Written)
Writing or print, handwritten comments, on (or about) students’ assessed work.
Personal, individual, and directly related to that piece of assessment or work.
Can become time consuming.
Easy to fall into the habit of writing in short hand, or just ticking or crossing.
Electronically, it also gives the option of emailing students.
Feedback: Face-to-face (Mode: Oral)
and Don't Forget Peer Feedback!
Whole class or group situation.
To individual students, who want to know how they are going and if they are on the right track.
Able to strengthen the feedback through body language, voice tone and facial expressions.
You have less time to make decisions about how to say things, and once you have said them you can't take them back.
Students are not grasping the idea of what they have to do.
Great tool to use if you want to highlight what they need to improve on.
Visual learners will benefit from this greatly.
When Feedback is given
How often it is given.
Immediate feedback for knowledge facts
Daily feedback for more comprehensive reviews of student thinking and processing
Do not delay feedback beyond when it would make a difference
Provide feedback as often as practical
How many feedback points are made
How much about each point.
Prioritize the most important points
select points that relate to the students learning goals
consider the students development/year level
Consider what is the best mode to present the feedback
Written feedback is useful for written work
Use demonstration if 'how to do something' is an issue
A mix of feedback modes can also be useful
Individual feedback -shows the student that YOU as the teacher value their learning
Group/class feedback- presents the opportunity for 'reteaching' core concepts
Useful tool- Formative
progression with learning
Develop new skills!
cognitive and motivational impact
Is feedback clear?
Does it place focus on learning objectives/criteria?
Any specific suggestions for improvement?
By Susan M.Brookhart in the text 'How to give effective feedback to your students'
Good feedback =
Improved work quality of the student
Student becomes a motivated learner
student/s will value constructive criticism
You always implemented the feedback given to you in drafting?
Raise your hands if:
You had time to always implement the feedback given to you? Who had time?
You used the draft copy as a final submission?
Why are students prevented from implementing feedback?
“If formative assessment is to be productive, pupils should be trained in self assessment so that they can understand the main purpose of their learning and thereby what they need to achieve” Black and William, 1988
Two Stars One Wish
Outline two positive aspects of the work from a peer.
Then express a wish about what they believe the peer could do next time.
Plus, Minus and What's Next?
Comment on what was done well by the success of the criteria.
Students use ‘what’s next?’ to set a personal learning target.
Where students will use green and orange highlighters to mark on the margin of other students work.
Green highlighter to indicate where they have been successful
Orange or amber highlighter to mark where improvements should be made
Feedback: Examples of Good Response (Mode: Visual / Demonstration)
Peer feedback is not the same as peer assessment.
Is used when students offer their classmates advice about their work.
Not all students will be comfortable in providing feedback for their classmates .
