The benefits of feedback

Feedback helps students understand the subject being studied and gives them clear guidance on how to improve their learning. We aim for our feedback to be timely so that it is paired as closely as possible with the event, written in a manner that is easy for the student to understand and actionable so that the student can make revisions.

This may be informal feedback such as ‘check ins’ that occur when the teacher visits students as they are engaged in a task to make sure they are on the right track, or formal feedback that the teacher provides after reviewing how the student has performed in a set task. Effective feedback helps enhance thinking and performance.
