This is a comprehensive document that emphasises and reminds us of the value of feedback for effective learning and teaching. 

From Curtin University’s ‘Teaching and Learning at Curtin (2010)’, the article refers to Phil Race’s book ‘Making Learning Happen’, in mentioning the fine balance between the effectiveness and efficiency of both providing and receiving feedback. Good feedback helps students learn effectively and helps teachers work efficiently. The higher ‘payoff’ forms of feedback are listed as: 


students comparing work

individual learning development plans 

peer-marking with feedback

constructive questioning within


presentations by students

verbal feedback to individuals

verbal feedback to whole class

verbal feedback to small groups

e-learning with instant feedback

group peer review

sharing model answers

small group tutorials

assessing against learning outcomes 

one-to-many email

criterion based written feedback

comments on written work

Diane Goodman‘s insight:

This is a great article for prompting teachers to reflect on the effectiveness of the feedback they currently provide to students. It includes timely, personalised, manageable and constructive suggestions for giving and receiving formative feedback, to maximise the ‘learning payoff’.
