Providing Learners With Feedback: New Paper Available From Questionmark
Giving learners feedback when they take assessments is a valuable way to help them make cognitive connections and retrieve correct information in the future. But how can feedback be used most effectively?
A new research paper licensed by Questionmark and published by Will Thalheimer of Work-Learning Research examines this topic in detail.
“Providing Learners With Feedback: Research-Based Recommendations for Training, Education, and e-Learning” is based on Thalheimer’s 10 years of studying research articles from the world’s pre-eminent refereed journals. Thalheimer’s research-to-practice report provides perspective on feedback’s place in learning, makes recommendations for practice, and explains the research that supports them. The paper establishes the context for feedback and the way it functions in the case of both correct and incorrect answers. It then offers recommendations for using feedback.
Here are some of the questions addressed by this paper:
