What is feedback?
There is no definition that is universally accepted.
A large scale, mixed methods study was performed to identify what makes effective feedback.
Monash, Deakin and Melbourne Universities all participated in the project.
(Support for the project was provided by the Australian Government Department of Education and Training.)
This is the definition that was decided upon as a result of the study.
“Feedback is a process in which learners make sense of information about their performance and use it to enhance the quality of their work or learning strategies”
