“To be effective, feedback needs to be clear, purposeful, meaningful and compatible with the students’ prior knowledge, and to provide logical connections. It also needs to prompt active information processing on the part of the learner, have low task complexity, relate to specific and clear goals, and provide little threat to the person at the level of self.”
- John Hattie, 2009
