Feedback: Try Something ...


« back

This section provides some suggestions for simple things you could try if you would like to make small changes to the way you feedback


allocating marks for acting on previous feedback

If you have two assignments in the same unit, then you can use some of the marks available in the second assignment to reward students who show how they have acted on the feedback in the first assignment. This could just be asking them to provide a simple statement at the end of the assignment which explains what they did in response to the feedback and indicating where the evidence for improvement can be found in the second submission. Any marks you give for this (5%? 10%?) should be on the quality of the statement rather than their improvement, which will be marked anyway as part of the second assignment.
