Providing Feedback Opportunities

Multiple opportunities for feedback on students’ learning progress are provided throughout a course so students have sufficient time to practice, reflect on the results and incorporate previous feedback

Students benefit from multiple and different opportunities (graded or ungraded) to demonstrate their learning and to receive feedback.  Assessments are one more way to provide practice opportunities essential for learning

Examples:

Online Resource Project: EDER 679 (From an interview with Patti Dyjur)
