Tips For Giving Feedback To Students More Efficiently and Effectively

By Bruce A. Johnson, Ph.D., MBA

An adjunct instructor has many responsibilities to consider each week and this emphasizes the need to have effective facilitation strategies. One responsibility that can be extremely demanding is feedback for written assignments, especially for assignments that are lengthy and involve complex topics. The challenge is to provide meaningful feedback for students in a timely manner. Students expect that their instructor will do more than provide a cursory overview or response to their assignment, especially when they have spent a great deal of time developing their paper. Evaluating students’ assignments requires the instructor to consider many aspects, from the content of what was written, to the mechanics and overall presentation of the response. Instructors need to be ready to effectively and efficiently meet the feedback challenge. Start with a rubric, which can provide uniform and meaningful feedback for all students.

The initial development of a rubric may take time; however, this is an opportunity to clearly define the assignment criteria and overall expectations. The assignment instructions often indicate what a student is to do for their assignment. A rubric will expand upon those instructions and offer an explanation regarding how it should be accomplished.
