Ensuring your students get good quality feedback that they can use is one of the most powerful ways to truly make a difference to their learning and satisfaction. This HERDSA Guide will show you how to plan for and provide feedback to students in a time effective way that helps them improve their learning and performance. Based on the latest research and models of feedback, this Guide is full of practical suggestions, insights and techniques. It begins by examining the role that feedback plays in in the educational environment and then provides an overview and synthesis of the literature, providing practical lists on what improves and impedes student performance and confidence.

The Guide then systematically takes you through the steps of:

  • setting up a programme conducive to making feedback usable;
  • showing you how to give powerful and effective feedback in class and on assessment tasks;
  • ensuring your students are able to give, receive and use feedback; and
  • evaluating your efforts.

Dr Iris Vardi has long held a research interest in assessment and feedback practices that make a difference to students’ learning. She has written several research articles, presented multiple conference papers and workshops, and has worked extensively with lecturers and tutors on feedback and assessment practices.
