Good feedback practices

The purpose of this guide is to offer advice and suggestions on providing effective feedback as well as examples of assessment systems teaching staff may be able to adopt in their own classes. It also contains a framework for reflecting on and evaluating existing feedback practice.

The first section of the guide discusses the nature of feedback with a focus on the two different forms: formative and summative. The second section addresses what makes good feedback and the third section looks at several different examples of assessment and feedback systems that you might find useful to adapt to your own classes. The final section contains a framework for the evaluation of teaching practice with particular emphasis on assessment and feedback opportunities.
