This book focuses on one of the key issues in student assessment - delivering student feedback. It considers feedback from both the perspective of tutor provider and student receiver to offer new insights into the impact feedback has on student performance. The text provides an opportunity to explore research and contemporary concerns about the function and impact of written feedback, and offers practical guidance on how to give more appropriate and effective feedback. The text also explores strategies for tutors to use with students to ensure that they make full use of tutor feedback. Giving Students Effective Feedback not only covers assessment theories and literature, but contains a wide range of examples as well as case studies that will be of use to all higher education staff involved in the teaching and support of student learners.
