Students’ utilisation of feedback: A cyclical model
Dr Edd Pitt
Programme Director for the PGCHE and Lecturer in HE and Academic Practice, University of Kent
Frequently lecturers report that feedback does not always have the desired effect of improving a student’s subsequent performance. It also appears that the students’ emotional response, motivation, self-confidence, and subsequent effort deployment in future assessments following feedback, is unpredictable and warrants further consideration. The findings being reported in this workshop indicate a multifaceted interpretation of the student experience and, as such, a six stage conceptual cyclical assessment and feedback model is proposed.
Dr Edd Pitt is Programme Director for the PGCHE and Lecturer in Higher Education and Academic Practice at the University of Kent. His principle research field is Assessment and Feedback with a particular focus upon student’s emotional processing during feedback situations.
