Criterion Six - Provides Prompt Feedback

Feedback is an important part of learning.  As new knowledge is being acquired, it is important to test that knowledge for clarity, understanding, and application.  The student continues to learn through the feedback you provide to the work that is completed.  Effective feedback continues the learning as students acquire the knowledge and skills to master your content. 


Observers will be looking to find evidence related to:

  • responds to student inquires and emails within the recommended timeline
  • answers student questions clearly and directly
  • provides feedback to incorrect answers
  • provides meaningful feedback to assignments and comments
  • praises students for contributions that deserve commendation
