Effective teacher education practice

Effective teacher education practice: the impact of written assessment feedback for distance learnersOutput from this 2005 TLRI project came across my desk today. The recomendations will not be a surprise but are pragmatic.

For more effective written feedback to students, we recommend:

  • that written feedback be seen as an integral part of the teaching process;
  • the use of justified comments and grades, so that students see what they could have done better or differently – justified feedback empowers and motivates students;
  • robust criteria for marking, as consistency between markers helps students use feedback globally;
  • timely turnaround;
  • open lines of communication, so that the student can access support at need; and further consideration of ways of supporting and engaging with Maori students, and how assessment feedback can align with tikanga Maori.
