Teachers know that students learn best when they’re actively engaged in their learning. While there are many different ways to engage students, one strategy we’re focused on is establishing effective feedback loops between students and teachers.
Effective feedback helps students identify goals, evaluate and synthesize ideas, discuss their work constructively with others, and take actions to improve their performance. Engaged students also develop self-regulation, critical thinking skills, and practice a growth mindset.
We’ve put together the following graphic to help teachers understand and visualize effective feedback loops. This image is inspired by Paul Black and Dylan Wiliam’s work on formative assessment. If you’d like to use this infographic in your classroom, a printable version can be found here.
