7 Things To Remember About Classroom Feedback

7 Things To Remember About Classroom Feedback | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education |
Feedback is an inevitable part of teaching. Naturally, you’re in a position where you’re giving a whole lot of feedback, but you’re likely on the receiving end of feedback as well.
Alfredo Corell's insight:
7 Things To Remember About Classroom Feedback
  • Feedback is not advice, praise or evaluation. Feedback is information about how we are doing in our efforts to reach a goal.
  • If students know the classroom is a safe place to make mistakes, they are more likely to use feedback for learning.
  • The feedback students give teachers can be more powerful than the feedback teachers give students.
  • When we give a grade as a part of feedback, students often don’t see past the grade.
  • Effective feedback occurs during the learning, when there is still time to act on it.
  • Most of the feedback that students receive about their classroom work is from other students – and most of that feedback is wrong.
  • Students need to know their learning target – the specific skill they’re supposed to learn – or else feedback is just someone telling them what to do.

The Most Important Question Every Assessment Should Answer

The Most Important Question Every Assessment Should Answer | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education |

"The difference between assessment of learning and assessment for learning is a crucial one, in many ways indicative of an important shift in education.

Traditionally, tests have told teachers and parents how a student “does,” then offers a very accessible point of data (usually percentage correct and subsequent letter grade) that is reported to parents as a performance indicator."

"Assessment for learning" versus "assessment of learning" is also promoted as a key component of the learning portfolio all colleges of pharmacy need to have to demonstrate student achievement.

I have practiced a system that covers four of the 5 key strategies for many years starting at five years of age.  I would not teach any other way. With this kind of assessment students after seven years of age can lead parent teacher conferences with ease and confidence. Had a dad in tears once who confessed it was the first time his son had talked meaningfully to him about his learning. Then I was in tears too....

A good little diagram but it does not address the issue of how to do requires modelling, first by the teacher, then slowly devolving the responsibility to the learner, and focus on one subject area at a time e.g. Literacy . In my experience it also requires set aside time with each student to assess together, recording what has been discussed so it is not forgotten. I am talking about elementary learners here..
