Feedback to student
Feedback on students’ assessment performance is a vital element in their learning. Its purpose is to justify to students how their competency was assessed, as well as to identify and reward specific qualities in their work, to recommend aspects needing improvement, and to guide students on what steps to take.
Feedback defines for students what their trainer/assessor thinks is important for a topic or a subject. At its best, feedback should:
- Be provided for each Unit Assessment Task (UAT)
- Guide students to adapt and adjust their learning strategies
- Guide trainers/assessors to adapt and adjust teaching to accommodate students’ learning needs
- Be a pivotal feature of learning and assessment design, not an add-on ritual
- Focus on course and unit learning outcomes
- Guide students to become independent and self-reflective learners and their own critics
- Acknowledge the developmental nature of learning
If students have not received proper feedback, they must speak to VET department/administration department in the RTO/person responsible for looking after the VET department/administration of the RTO.
For more information, please refer to the RTO Student Handbook.
