How Can I Use Assessment Data to Provide Meaningful Feedback and Deeper Learning?

Providing meaningful feedback is a pivotal aspect of the teaching and learning process but is often filled with obstacles for educators. They often grapple with time constraints, preventing them from offering in-depth feedback, while their provided guidance may not be effectively absorbed by students. Another challenge is ensuring their feedback dives deep enough into the subject matter, which often veers into dispending information rather than crafting constructive feedback. Regardless of the challenge posed, without meaningful feedback, students will continue to repeat the same errors from assignment to assessments.

In this Magna 20-Minute Mentor, Nichole Barta, EdD, presents a solution to these feedback challenges. In just 20 minutes, she will:

  • demonstrate how assessment data can be leveraged to address these issues
  • identify essential elements for delivering meaningful feedback
  • emphasize how assessment data can be harnessed to inform teaching practices effectively

Come away with valuable insights into developing an assessment system tailored to your specific course which will empower you to provide feedback that not only enriches student learning but also enables you to adapt your teaching techniques to enhance students’ classroom performance.
