On the Impact of Our Feedback: Students Choosing, and Using, to Learn
Reyes, Reynaldo, III
College Teaching, v61 n4 p111-112 2013
Do our students actually read and use the feedback we provide? If so, what purpose does it serve them? Although these should be concerns, if we provide the adequate tools and guidance on how to use our feedback, this question should not be a pedagogical burden. Ultimately, learning, thinking, and understanding are the products of good feedback to a student, which includes feedback that may not be as concrete as students would like. But concrete ambiguity may be the key in helping our students develop their thinking, as well as their writing.
