The objective of this scaffolded feedback sheet is to eradicate confusion and complications with teacher feedback; to enable learners to really benefit from the assessment process.
Through its scaffolded-approach and the marking abbreviations, learner autonomy is facilitated through putting the onus on the learner to easily identify traits within their writing and to action growth (learners can complete the abbreviations and frequency table following teacher’s summative comment, if appropriate; you could also only mark the first paragraph for technical accuracy, and ask the students to complete the rest). This provides clarity of development areas, and I have also used this to create SMART targets and to evidence learner progress. Learners then complete the self-reflection model to evidence that they have read and digested the feedback provided.
Furthermore, it can also be used as a tool of peer-assisted assessment by replacing the teacher comments with those of peers.
Also, importantly, it saves time for the teacher!!!
Please feel free to adapt as you see fit, and I would love to hear any feedback regarding how it has been used in your practice.
Thanks, Edward Key.
