How can you make sure that feedback is useful? Assessment is not a means in itself but should help students to learn from mistakes.

Feedback helps students to:

  • Understand the marks they have been given.
  • Know where/what to improve for future assessments.
  • Understand their progress against learning outcomes.
  • Identify strengths and weaknesses.
  • Improve their understanding of subject material and build upon their learning.
  • Develop assessment literacy skills.
  • Make choices regarding study pathways.
  • Become self-reflective practitioners and lifelong learners.
  • Feedback is always formative, even when given on summative assessments.
