The Quality Feedback quest offers online teachers methods and best practices for providing authentic feedback to students.
The effective online teacher provides consistent feedback and course materials in a timely manner, and he or she uses online tool functionality to improve instructional efficiency and student mastery.
Isolating methods of offering students authentic, quality feedback on all student submissions.
In the online classroom, the quality of feedback students receive is more integral to student success than the feedback obtained in the traditional classroom. As the teacher, live interaction with students via synchronous sessions remains a primary mode of assisting students with content and the instructional process.
The feedback in the screenshot above gives the student specific next steps to improve academically. It is customized for the student and is key for the student to improve and succeed.
The Online Education Resources: Pedagogy and Learning portion of Illinois Online Network‘s (ION) site features a helpful webpage titled Strategies for Providing Feedback that is well worth investigating.
