Role of teacher feedback in formative classroom assessment
Role of teacher feedback in formative classroom assessment assessment?

  • To provide information

  • Relevant to the learning task

  • Which the student perceives as information

  • And uses for internal regulation of learning

    • Cognitively, taking the next steps for improvement

    • Motivationally, understanding his/her control over the learning



What kinds of feedback best

  • Which the student perceives as information

  • And uses for internal regulation of learning

    • Cognitively, taking the next steps for improvement

    • Motivationally, understanding his/her control over the learning


Feedback strategies
Feedback Strategies assessment?


Timing
Timing assessment?

  • Immediate feedback for knowledge of facts (right/wrong)

  • Slight delay for more comprehensive reviews of student thinking and processing

  • Never delay feedback beyond when it would make a difference to students

  • As often as is practical, for all major assignments


Timing1
Timing assessment?

  • Bangert-Drowns, Kulik, & Kulik (1991)


Amount
Amount assessment?

  • Prioritize – pick the most important point(s)

  • Choose points that relate to major learning goals

  • Consider student’s developmental level


Amount1
Amount assessment?

  • Kluger & DeNisi (1996)

  • Sadler (1989)


Mode assessment?

  • Best mode for the message – would a comment in passing the student’s desk suffice? Conference needed?

  • Interactive feedback (talking with the student) is best when possible

  • Written feedback on written work or on assignment cover sheets

  • Use demonstration if “how to do something” is an issue or if student needs an example


Mode assessment?

  • Evaluation vs. grading studies about “written feedback”

  • Modeling and social learning theory for demonstrations


Audience
Audience assessment?

  • Individual feedback says “The teacher values my learning”

  • Group/class feedback works if most of the class missed the same concept on an assignment – becomes an opportunity for reteaching


Audience1
Audience assessment?

  • Classroom management and differentiated instruction literature

  • Johnston (2004)

  • Bloom (1984)




Focus
Focus assessment?

  • When possible, describe both the work and the process – and their relationship

  • Comment on student’s self-regulation if the comment will foster self-efficacy

  • Avoid personal comments


Focus1
Focus assessment?

  • Hattie & Timperley (2007)


Function
Function assessment?

  • Describe

  • Don’t judge


Function1
Function assessment?

  • Ryan, Connell, & Deci (1985)

  • Butler & Nisan (1986)

  • Crooks (1988)

  • Tunstall & Gipps (1996)

  • Black & Wiliam (1998)


Comparison
Comparison assessment?

  • Use criterion-referenced feedback for giving information about the work itself

  • Use self-referenced feedback for giving information about student processes or effort

  • Use self-referenced feedback for unsuccessful learners who need to see how they are making progress, not how far they are from the goal


Comparison1
Comparison assessment?

  • Bangert-Drowns, Kulik, Kulik, & Morgan (1991)

  • Sadler (1989)

  • Classroom environment or classroom structure studies

  • Covington (1992)

  • Ames & Archer (1988)


Valence
Valence assessment?

  • Use positive comments that describe what is well done

  • Accompany negative descriptions of the work with positive suggestions for improvement


Valence1
Valence assessment?

  • Typology of Teacher Feedback (Tunstall & Gipps, 1996, p. 394)


Clarity
Clarity assessment?

  • Use vocabulary and concepts the student will understand

  • Tailor amount and content of feedback to student’s developmental level


Clarity1
Clarity assessment?

  • Sadler (1989)


Specificity
Specificity assessment?

  • How “specific” depends on the student and the task

  • Feedback should be specific enough that the student knows what to do, but not so specific that it’s done for him/her

  • Identify errors or types of errors, but correcting every one (e.g., copyediting or supplying right answers) doesn’t leave the student anything to do


Specificity1
Specificity assessment?

  • Kluger & DeNisi (1996)

  • Sadler (1989)


Tone assessment?

  • Choose words that communicate respect for the student and the work

  • Choose words that position the student as the agent

  • Choose words that cause students to think or wonder


Tone assessment?

  • Johnston (2004)

  • Covington (1992)


Conclusion
Conclusion assessment?

  • What is the role of teacher feedback in formative classroom assessment?

    • Part of the external regulation of learning

    • Feedback is what the teacher does but in the end what matters is what the student does

    • The role of feedback is to present students with the means, motive, and opportunity for internal regulation of learning.


Conclusion1
Conclusion assessment?

  • What kinds of feedback are most effective?

    • Discussion of research on feedback (including some major reviews) and other relevant literature in light of the realities of classroom practice

    • Classify findings into choices for teachers about feedback strategies and feedback content


Conclusion2
Conclusion assessment?
