Characteristics of Effective Feedback


education-614155_640It’s not the providing of feedback, but students’ use of it that makes feedback effective. In this edWeb webinar Susan M. Brookhart, PhD and consultant for Brookhart Enterprises LLC shared with attendees the characteristics of feedback that is most likely to be useful to students. She showed educators how to examine feedback episodes for evidence of learning and how to couple each feedback episode with an immediate opportunity for students to use the information. The webinar was part one of a two-part series hosted by edWeb’s Assessment for Learning community that gave educators a framework for evaluating how feedback is given and how it is used.
