    8. 34. <ul><li>Flinders University </li></ul><ul><li>Feedback defines for students what their teacher thinks is important for a topic or a subject. At its best, feedback should: </li></ul><ul><li>guide teachers and students </li></ul><ul><li>be a core part of teaching and learning </li></ul><ul><li>not an add-on ritual </li></ul><ul><li>focus around course outcomes </li></ul><ul><li>guide students to become independent learners and their own critics </li></ul>What is feedback? A reminder of what is important
    9. 35. Types of feedback Informal worked examples, formative, informing the process Formal in writing (e.g. checklists, written commentary, generic exemplars) Direct to individual student (often at the end, time consuming) Indirect to whole class (what it might look like) Formative given during the run of the topic, enabling thinking and changes, get a ‘second chance’ Summative end of a topic, lets students know what they have achieved, often not read, no improvement, often just editing, too late, no explanation ‘Excellent’ or an essay for a poor effort
