The problem:
• Student satisfaction with feedback is frequently low
• Tutors spend hours writing feedback which appears to be largely ineffective at reducing students’ errors or increasing average grades

Identified causes of the problem:
• Current linear model of feedback delivery - feedback is ‘left’ for students to read - there is little dialogue about the feedback
• Timeliness - feedback is received 3-4 weeks after submission - its relevance and utility are lost on students
• Misinterpretation of feedback - reportedly markers’ comments are unclear, not constructive, lack relevancy or specificity - short-hand and abbreviated comments add to the problem.
