Feed back is the information about reactions to a product, a person’s performance of a task, used as a basis for improvement.
When feedback focuses on the cue or refinement and often demonstrated to the entire class, this is termed congruent feedback.
Simple feedback is when one of the advantages of providing congruent feedback for the teacher is that the teacher focuses on lonely one component at time. This is far easier and no doubt more accurate than attempting to do a complete biomechanical analysis of all children in the class as the teacher moves around, attempting to quickly observe and review the correct use of four, six, or even eight critical components.
If we’re honest with ourselves, we probably tend to favor one type of child over another. Some of us prefer to teach the highly skilled, others, the less skilled. Ideally, we provide equal amounts of feedback to youngsters of all skill levels.
Feedback is important to children. They want and need to know how they are doing. Children receive reasonable amounts of feedback from a teacher and they are not neglected. Feedback that is specific, congruent, simple, and positive or neutral is most effective with children.
