Disadvantages of Feedback.
Williams, Richard C.
If feedback from educational research is not properly related or interpreted, it can often be more detrimental than beneficial. Five factors that should be kept in mind regarding feedback are: (1) varying interpretations of research findings depending on the user, (2) ethical-human aspects, (3) validity problems, (4) interaction effects, and (5) contamination of the original sample. Two case studies illustrating some of the above mentioned problems are presented. (CK)
