  • Writing: Feedback loop consisting of draft, written and/or oral feedback, rewrite, more written feedback.
  • Research: Review of research log and/or list of authorities; in-class discussion.

Problems with Traditional Approaches to Feedback on Research
  • Difficult to figure out what student did.
  • Really difficult to figure out what student didn’t do.
  • Not real-world work product.
  • Research too divorced from its use.
  • Students don’t revise their research.
  • Not individually-tailored.
the solution

  • Provide students individual feedback on their research itself, not just on log/list.
