Most feedback on assignments is focussed on what has been done rather than on what improvements can be made for future pieces of work (Vardi, 2013). There have been many studies that report on how students find feedback difficult to understand and therefore find it problematic to make use of them in subsequent assessments (Lea and Street, 2000, Beaumont, O’Doherty and Shannon, 2011, Price et al, 2010)

Price et al (2010) recognised that students report that they do not know what to do with feedback. This is something that has also been reported by students within the College of Nursing, Midwifery and Healthcare. Hine and Northeast (2016) recognised that using feed-forward strategies would improve student performance and satisfaction with feedback.

Two handouts that have been trialled with a group of Level 4 student midwives in Berkshire. This has given the students an explanation about what feed-forward is and how it can be used to inform their future work. This has also benefitted them by being better able understand some of the key terms used in written feedback. These have been recently introduced alongside a College wide assessment comment sheet that focusses on effective feedback and feed-forward.
