  • 1. From Gutenbergto ZuckerbergDonald Clark
  • 2. Black & WilliamInside the Black BoxFormative feedback key to better learningDon’t praise the child! Praise the work• all down to ability• ‘teacher’ likes me• stops them from trying harder
  • 3. Black & WilliamInside the Black BoxAvoid ‘hands up’ techniques:• In too early, 3 secs• Encourages achievers, discourages rest• Rarely diagnostic• Hinge questions
  • 4. Black & WilliamInside the Black BoxAvoid marking:• poor as formative assessment• mark of fixed ability - says nothing about improvement• even high achievers – done enough, not full competence• tests are terminal – mark of Cain
  • 5. Students given three types of feedback (n=132, Y7)1) Marks2) Comments3) Marks plus commentsATTAINMENTComments SIGNIFICANT gainMarks NO gainMarks plus comments NO gainINTEREST & MOTIVATIONComments ALL upMarks HIGH ACHIEVERS up LOW ACHIEVERS downMarks plus comments HIGH ACHIEVERS up LOW ACHIEVERS downWhy more feedback Marks plus comments have a negative effect?‘Marks’ signalled end of the matter, a terminal testStopped learning and further interestHold back on marking in formative assessment
  • 6. E-learning and formative feedbackTechnology, in the form of self-paced e-learning content, simulations,games and adaptive learning have all contributed to increasing thelevel of feedback in learning. In real time simulations and games, suchas flight simulators, the feedback is continuous and in real time. Morerecently. In adaptive learning, powerful back-end algorithms havesupported sophisticated feedback, especially in maths, based on whatthe learner has done, where they want to go, presenting the rightcontent and feedback, dynamically on their learning journey.ConclusionIs there evidence that improving formative assessment raisesstandards? Yes.Is there evidence that there is room for improvement? Yes.Is there evidence about how to improve formative assessment? Yes.Black and Wiliam shone a spotlight on a critical weakness ineducational theory and policies – the lack of focus on effective teachingand, in particular, formative feedback, which they believe is the key toincreasing the effectiveness of teaching and learning in schools.

  • 26. What led to success?1. Concentrate on large enrollment courses2. Improvements apply to many types of courses3. Don’t fiddle, redesign the whole course4. Don’t bolt on new technologies to existing system5. Move students from passive, "note-taking" role to active-learning orientation6. Move from entirely lecture-based to a student engagement approach
