*Asks a question (Jones, 2004)
* Don't delay feedback. If students have to wait for feedback, they don't connect it to their effort, and they are less likely to benefit from that feedback. (Providing Feedback, 2005)
* To help with timely feedback use technology, written, verbal, and peer feedback.
* Timely feedback arrives when the student can use it.
* uses the language of the success criteria to identify what the student did well, and the next step toward proficiency
Specific feedback:
* may come from teachers, peers, or from student self-assessment, but always refers to the success criteria.
Specific feedback does not:
* focus on the student
* focuses attention on the work or effort
* use vague language such as good job
*Effective feedback happens DURING the learning while students can still act on it.
* "Stay in the cognitive coach mode by using your feed-forward information to encourage self monitoring, self-assessment, and goal setting as students engage in the task" (Moss, 2012, p. 77).
* Point the way toward success, but don't help so much that the student has no thinking left to do (Chappuis, 2009).
