Section 6 of the QAA Code of practice on Assessment of students, 2000, to ‘ensure that appropriate feedback is provided…in a way that promotes learning and facilitates improvement.’ (Quality Assurance Agency, 2000)


Student use of tutor feedback has been identified as one of the weak links in the assessment chain.


In 2006 I presented a paper on Using feedback Effectively, based around a form which encouraged students to

- unpack the feedback

- prepare for a tutorial

- get more out of a tutorial

- action plan to act on feedback

- try out selected resources

The UK National Student Survey continues to record student dissatisfaction with feedback, both in terms of the quality of the feedback and the time lag between handing in and return on work.

- use of a template to help staff conduct feedback tutorials
