Abstract
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.
