What should the feedback I receive tell me?

The feedback you receive should tell you what you did well and what you can improve on in future work. It should be positive and constructive and it should be linked to the criteria it was marked against. Finally, it should not contain any unfamiliar jargon, but instead should use the language that you have been using in class.

Key Points

  • Feedback should clarify how you can improve in the future.
  • It should be positive, constructive, clear and be linked to the marking criteria.
  • If your feedback does not help you improve, or you do not understand it, ask for clarification.
  • If you go to talk about feedback, go prepared.
