Assessment feedback is critical to effectively promote student learning. It is the lynchpin to students’ effective decision making, and the basis of improved learning outcomes. However, feedback is under-utilised and often misunderstood by both students and educators and there is no single feedback strategy or model that has been shown to work across all contexts. The Australian Higher Education sector is in need of a useful and useable approach for improving feedback to promote student learning and experience.
We have a surfeit of models, frameworks, principles and strategies in the considerable expanse of literature exploring feedback, yet we have little guidance on how to choose amongst them. As such, our project aims to enhance student learning and experience by improving institutional, educator, and student capacity to stimulate and leverage assessment feedback.
