Student Feedback at OLOR
Here at OLOR, we believe that meaningful feedback can greatly enhance learning and improve student achievement. Successful feedback for students allows them to identify their strengths along with areas for development and then plan, with their teacher, the next step in their learning.
An example of a feedback process used at OLOR is from John Hattie, a renowned researcher in education:
The above process creates a positive impact on student learning, because guidance is constantly provided during learning tasks. Feedback needs to be specific to both acknowledge a child’s effort and/or improvement and give direction for their future endeavours.
Here at OLOR, we use the following feedback techniques:
Peer assessment where students receive positive or helpful advice from their peers
Self assessment where teachers guide students to analyse their work to help develop their skills
Data walls in the classroom to track student’s growth
Written feedback (marking books)
Small group feedback
As you can see written or electronic annotations, while important, are only one aspect of our feedback process. Therefore, not every piece of written or online work will have teacher comments provided.
