How much feedback is enough? How much feedback is effective? It’s a tricky balance we have to strike. Our desire to help students is what makes us effective teachers, but at what point does our enthusiasm to help work against learning? And for some of us there is the feeling that if we don’t correct all the mistakes a student makes, we might be contributing to a culture of carelessness. You’ll be glad to know that a vast body of research on these very concerns has created a set of informed best practices from which any grader/marker of student writing can benefit.
