Knowing How To Give Feedback Is Crucial
Do you sometimes wonder if your students could be doing better than they already are if you approached your work differently?
Imagine that one simple strategy could boost your students’ results by 29 percentile points – research shows it can.
If you want to help your students do even better at school, you need to give them more feedback.
Research1 clearly shows that giving students feedback helps to increase their achievement.
Educational guru, John Hattie, found that it is one of the most powerful things a teacher can do, and that anyone interested in simple ways to improve student achievement should start with dollops and dollops of feedback.
However, some forms of feedback are far more powerful than others. In fact, research2 shows that when teachers give feedback the wrong way, it can even have a negative effect on performance.
Some types of feedback are more powerful than others.
This is why it is critical that you learn how to give feedback to your students the right way.
