Feedback

Feedback is a vital part of the assessment process in its potential to impact student learning. Good feedback can be designed to motivate student learning, identifying strong points, provide tips on what to do next and indicating areas for improvement. Feedback is also a useful teaching tool, giving teachers indicators of student engagement with the course. Good practice includes using a variety of feedback methods in a timely and meaningful way.
