Quality feedback for learning

Feedback is one of the most powerful influences on learning and achievement. The purpose of feedback is to justify to students how their mark or grade was derived, to identify and reward specific qualities in student work, guide students on what steps to take to improve, motivate them to act on their assessment, and to develop their capability to engage in their own learning. The type of feedback, way it is delivered and the language used can have a positive or negative impact, thus making it a crucial component of student learning success.
