Does feedback improve teaching and learning?
The role of theory in advancing knowledge in the area of feedback and performance is extremely problematic; only experiments conducted over a long period will establish this (Coe, 2006).
In 2006, Prof Robert Coe published a 25-page paper to highlight how feedback can improve performance. The purpose was to determine if people who receive feedback on a task perform better than those who do not, and if it is supported by any empirical evidence.
