Types of Feedback

Positive Feedback
Negative Feedback
Positive feedback has two principal functions: to let students know that they have performed correctly, and to increase motivation through praise.
Much of the feedback provided by teachers often seems to be rather automatic and its ultimate effect on the learners is doubtful.

Definition of Feedback

According to the Cambridge Dictio­nary, to give "­fee­dba­ck" is to give inform­ation or statements of opinion about something, in our case, education. Teachers need to be always providing feedback on perfor­mance when they are instru­cting their students.

More Different Types of Feedback

Praise: Motivate the student, create a positive atmosp­here.
Correc­tion: Target language and helpful correction to motivate students.
Advice and Encour­age­ment: What can students do to help themse­lves?
Evalua­tio­n/A­sse­ssment: How can students measure their success?

Why is Feedback Important?

Feedback is an essential part of the learning process, if you are a paying student then it stands to reason that you assume to receive support and encour­agement from the teacher.
