Here's How - Student Assessmenticons

Feedback Strategies

1. Include pre-assessment surveys to assess student readiness for course content and method of delivery. Free online tools to try: Survey Monkey and Zoomerang.

2. Consider having students submit multiple drafts of written assignments. Instructors can make comments and suggestions for improvement and let students know if they are on the right track.

3. Include self-mastery tests and practice quizzes that provide feedback with each selected response.

4. Provide interactive games or simulations with built-in feedback.

5. Have students review each others' work. Colorado State has some wonderful Peer Review Resources for writing assignments.

6. Provide model papers or essays for student viewing. Research the web for sample papers in your subject area and grade level.

7. Consider sample test bank answers or answer keys if you have access. There may be some available to you through your textbook publishing company and/or on the Internet.

8. Ensure students have a way to let you know if they are having difficulty understanding course materials. Consider implementing the Muddiest Point technique, (discussed in detail on the next page).
