Example: Not All Feedback is Created Equal (IgnitED Research)

This video shares evidence from the learning sciences and a practitioner perspective around student feedback

Overview

It seems to be common (and accepted) knowledge that effective feedback is timely and relevant. In other words, receiving a simple grade on a test two weeks after it was given is unlikely to improve learning.

But learning science has also shown that feedback, even when timely and relevant, can still be ineffective, or even harmful.

In this installment of IgnitED Research, we take a closer look at feedback.
