Effective feedback

Providing reinforcement and corrective feedback

As well as collaborative work, teacher questioning can be used to check understanding and provide feedback and feed forward. However teachers need to avoid using closed questions such as "Do you understand?" in favour of asking students open questions that require them to explain.

It is important that feedback provides explicit guidance on the next step the student needs to take instead of focusing on surface errors.

The content card (Word 43KB) provides a useful opportunity for peer feedback using a structured format.
