Feedback should assist students in meeting and exceeding expectations and is the cornerstone of success. It should be customized and propel the student to strive for better performance or for deeper thought and application. It is important for an instruction to consider student performance data when providing feedback to see if there are any trends or additional insights as to the students performance. It is both observational because you are looking at the students performance in a real way as well as instructional because you can use their performance to help inform your class presentations in addition to helping the student learn from his/her mistakes and do better next time.
Click Circles Assignment Feedback to view an example of feedback that was given to a student. This assessment was used to measure the following standards:
MGSE9-12.G.C.1 Understand that all circles are similar.
MGSE9-12.G.C.2 Identify and describe relationships among inscribed angles, radii, chords, tangents, and secants. Include the relationship between central, inscribed, and circumscribed angles; inscribed angles on a diameter are right angles; the radius of a circle is perpendicular to the tangent where the radius intersects the circle.
With this assessment, students were able to make changes and resubmit for a higher grade. If students still did not understand the assessment, additional instruction would be provided before the summative assessment.
