Effective Feedback- Updated Version

  1. 1. WHY? Academic feedback is more strongly and consistently related to achievement than any other teaching behavior….This relationship is consistent regardless of grade, socioeconomic status, race, or school setting. ~ Bellon, Bellon & Blank
  2. 2. CLEAR TARGET We can differentiate between effective and ineffective academic feedback.
  3. 3. ACTIVITY • Pair up, one seated and one standing directly behind. • Seated person will receive pencil and a blank piece of paper. • Wait for further instruction. • You will have 3 minutes to complete this activity once the timer starts.
  4. 4. PREASSESSMENT • (1 minute) Individually, list as many characteristics of effective academic feedback as you can. • (2 minutes) Discuss each list as a group & decide on the top 2 most important characteristics.
  5. 5. WAYS IN WHICH WE RESPOND TO STUDENTS Evaluation – providing information by making a value judgment that rates, evaluates, praises, or criticizes what was done. Advice – letting a student know what you think they should do. Feedback – providing specific information about how a student is doing in his/her efforts to reach a goal.
  6. 6. 7 KEYS TO EFFECTIVE FEEDBACK CHARACTERISTIC OUTCOME 1) GOAL-REFERENCED Learner knows whether they are on track towards a goal or need to change course. 2) TANGIBLE & TRANSPARENT Learner can understand exactly how your feedback relates to the task at hand. 3) ACTIONABLE Learners know specifically what actions to take to move towards his/her goal. 4) USER-FRIENDLY Learner finds the feedback appropriate to his/her cognitive level. 5) TIMELY Learner receives feedback while the attempt and effect are still fresh in his/her mind. 6) ONGOING Learner has multiple opportunities to learn and improve towards the ultimate goal. 7) CONSISTENT Learner can adjust his/her performance based on stable, accurate, and trust-worthy feedback.
  7. 7. EFFECTIVE VS. INEFFECTIVE FEEDBACK • Pair up with someone from your group. • Read each example, and based on the key characteristics, determine if it’s EFFECTIVE or INEFFECTIVE. Effective Feedback Ineffective Feedback
  8. 8. EFFECTIVE VS. INEFFECTIVE FEEDBACK • With your partner, focus on the examples you deemed “ineffective” and improve them to make them more effective. • Record your improved examples on the provided handout. • Share your results with the others in your group and provide feedback to them.
