Transforming feedback practice

When thinking about transforming feedback practice, there are a number of things to consider. These include: what are you trying to achieve; what is the context in which the learning and teaching take place; what are the intended learning outcomes for the course/programme and are they being assessed; what assessment methods do you use; what year are your students in and how much experience do they have; what resources do you have available and what do you believe will really allow support students to demonstrate their learning in the assessments you set for them?
