20 Types of Feedback

We want to broaden the way you think about student feedback. Feedback is not a make-work project! It is an opportunity for the student to learn how to gauge their own performance.  Your main task in providing feedback is to give students the tools they need to become autonomous learners. As your students develop throughout their programs, the more they can and should rely on themselves and their peers as primary sources for feedback.



Self-feedback is feedback generated by the students themselves in the form of self-testing and reflection.

Peer feedback is feedback from other students.

Automated feedback is the feedback that has been set up by the instructor to be delivered at the appropriate time via software.

Instructor feedback is written or verbal feedback from the instructor.
