What feedback is and isn’t

The following is excerpted from an article by Grant Wiggins:

“The research is clear: good feedback is essential to learning at high levels.”

“Feedback is useful information about the effects of an action in light of a goal.”

  1. Feedback is Not praise and Not advice
  2. Feedback focuses corrective measures and specific actions that the learner can take.
  3. The purpose or what is expected is clear. Clarity promotes self-regulation.
  4. Exemplars and models of both excellent and subpar work are provided. 
  5. The feedback is timely
Wiggins points out that, on standardized tests and final exams: there is NO feedback.
