Student Feedback


Providing students with constructive and timely feedback on their performance is good practice and an important part of the student learning process.

In-Course Assessments

It is good practice to provide feedback to students on their in-course assessments in time to ensure that this feedback could enhance their learning: feedback within two weeks of the submission of an assessment is a good rule-of-thumb.

Examination Feedback

Feedback on examination performance helps students’ learning and can be provided in a number of ways, including:

  • a summary of the main deficiencies or common mistakes of previous cohorts in answering questions related to particular topics (e.g., online through the Learning Management System);
  • providing the above feedback on previous examinations to students as part of the course;
  • meeting students individually, on request, to review their examination scripts.
