Dawson, Phillip; Henderson, Michael; Mahoney, Paige; Phillips, Michael; Ryan, Tracii; Boud, David; Molloy, Elizabeth – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2019
Since the early 2010s the literature has shifted to view feedback as a process that students do where they make sense of information about work they have done, and use it to improve the quality of their subsequent work.

Izienicki, Hubert; Setchfield, Scott – Teaching Sociology, 2019
