The power of the Infographic is that it references both teacher and student actions and habits. I have shared it with my teachers. This might become a solid self-assessment tool for coaching conversations with teachers.

Three lessons from data on the best ways to give feedback to students - Education By The Numbers

Three lessons from data on the best ways to give feedback to students - Education By The Numbers | Intellectual Engagement in the 21st Century | Scoop.it
Though the researchers initially found more than 1600 studies that looked at how students learned from computer responses to their answers, they determined that only 40 of these studies were high quality ones that directly compared different types of feedback to see which were most effective.  Most of the studies were aimed at university students and the researchers lamented how few studies looked at how younger students respond to computerized feedback.
