Feedback is an integral element of the learning processes. It should aim to be informative and analytical, supportive and constructive and formative. It should not only provide information to students on how they have performed in the assessment task and towards achieving the learning outcomes, but also provide advice to improve their learning and future performances (known as formative or feed-forward feedback). The challenge for the educator is to provide this information regularly, in a timely fashion and keep the feedback process manageable.
