This project is a collaboration between Monash University, Deakin University, and Melbourne University. We aim to answer the following questions about effective feedback practices:

  • What are the current assessment feedback practices and which of these lead to improved student performance?
  • Why are some forms of these practices successful?
  • How can we best design for effective feedback to promote learning?
  • How can the circumstances of successful feedback for learning be replicated and sustained across and within Australian universities

Our approach will deliver a pragmatic and empirically based framework of feedback designs to guide educators, academic developers and instructional designers, as well as institutional policy. This will be supported by large scale data highlighting patterns of success, and case studies of feedback designs to demonstrate how success can be achieved.

In addition, this project will facilitate the likelihood of adoption through a series of dissemination activities, including national workshops built on a participatory design approach.
