Rethinking Student Feedback

Depending on the subject matter and requirements for a course, students may not realize what they can’t do or don’t understand until it is too late — the final paper is handed in or the final exam is over. This post will help you rethink when and how students get feedback about their progress in the course to increase learning and mastery of the material. You may not be able to ditch the grade book in your next course, but the use of continuous feedback will help students understand why they received the grades they see there.
