Recommending a Book About Feedback

I don’t usually recommend purchasing books, but I think this one is well worth the investment.  Here is a brief description and a link:

Chapter 6. Feedback: The Long View—Does Feedback Improve Learning?

A Short Excerpt:

“Feedback can lead to learning only if the students have opportunities to use it. One of the best ways you can help students learn to use feedback is to make sure you build in opportunities for students to use it fairly soon after they receive it. The “long view” of feedback, using the metaphor of a telescope lens, helps us remember to focus on the consequences of feedback. Did the feedback improve student learning?”

 

  • Model giving and using feedback yourself.
  • Teach students where feedback comes from.
  • Teach students self-and peer-assessment skills
  • Increase students’ interest in feedback because they own

Too often, when students produce schoolwork, they turn it into a teacher for a grade and move on. And after the teacher spends time evaluating the student’s work, many students never look at the feedback, a cycle that frustrates both parties and isn’t the most effective way to learn.
