Providing students with meaningful feedback can greatly enhance learning and improve student achievement. We address two different types of feedback methods.
Teacher feedback involves the teacher giving feedback to students. You can use this for:
- Doing check-ins to see how students are progressing, answer questions, or help with ideas.
- Providing positive feedback and offering constructive criticism.
- Giving students the opportunity to successfully self-monitor and achieve more.
Peer feedback involves students giving each other feedback on assignments. You can use this for:
- Providing students with more feedback on their assignments than they would otherwise receive.
- Allowing students to experience the educational benefits that come with having to review someone else’s work.
- Saving time on providing students with feedback (from the lecturer).
- Improving the quality of handed in assignments, by first using peer feedback and allowing students to improve their work prior to the formal grading.
