How to Provide Meaningful Feedback with Edform
It is impossible to improve and make great progress in the learning process if the student does not know if he is going in the right direction. Let's understand what meaningful feedback is and how to leave it on Edform.
Why is Meaningful Feedback Important?
Distance learning has a significant disadvantage: limited interaction between the student and the teacher. You feel the lack of "live" communication. Because of the teacher's absence, students do not have a clear picture of what mistakes they are making and what needs to be worked on. Many teachers are accustomed to giving feedback, but they do not fully understand how best to provide feedback to students and receive it from them.
The emotional component of the feedback is essential. If the instructor shows emotion, they will get the emotion in return.
Less effective is short-term feedback, expressed in an interim or final control of student knowledge. That is why it is best carried out within the framework of formative assessment (for more details about formative and summative assessment see here).
How to Give Meaningful Feedback on Edform
Feedback can be oral, written, or provided digitally. Thanks to the possibilities of Edform the instructor can leave feedback in the video, audio, or written format. Giving feedback on the platform is easy because you do not need to download and upload video or audio to the platform, you can do it directly from Edform.
To give feedback on the student's answer, follow the instructions:
- Go to the Reports section.
- Select the desired assignment.
- Choose the person you want to leave feedback to from the list of students.
- Click Add Feedback.
- After you click this button, a window appears with an empty field for written feedback and two more options (record video, record audio)
- To record video, make sure you have a working webcam and microphone to give the website permission to record video.
- To record audio, make sure you have a microphone set up to give the website permission to record audio.
5 Ways You Can Fix Your Feedback Process
Is the feedback process complicated for you? Then you should change your approach to it. Start with these five helpful tips and work your way to the top.
- Feedback should be specific, clear, and concise for students.
- Encourage and support further student efforts.
- Do not make changes to the feedback process during the school year.
- Use positive vocabulary even if the assignment is not done the way it should be completed. For example, "I see that you have chosen this way of doing the task. Indeed, it's much better than you've done so far."
- The teacher should not be a constant supervisor.
The main point of distance learning is to give the right feedback and not forget that students need it to successfully overcome learning milestones.
