At least, that is what research by Hattie, Wiliam, Lysakowski, Walberg, and others suggests. Yet, it is also one of the most variable: more than a third of the studies show a negative outcome on student learning. Added to that, 80% of the verbal feedback that students receive during the day comes from other students, and most of it is wrong. Imagine if we could address these problems and get the effect of feedback right more of the time. Choosing this topic will help you do just that.
