Personalized Feedback Before Exam


To provide students with a tool that will help students target studying efforts in anticipation of an assessment.


By providing targeted feedback, students will gain the skills and content knowledge needed to perform their best on an assessment.

Action Steps

  • Each student gets a feedback form highlighting the top areas in which they had shown success and the most important areas to focus their studying during the upcoming review week.
  • The feedback form should explicitly state what content skill they need to work on and what non-content skill (perseverence, some metacognitive strategy, etc.).
