What the Research Says: e-Assessment: Which way now? Symposium | London Knowledge Lab, Institute of Education, London | 16th May 2013

Writing motivating feedback


Assessment feedback has been an evolving construct used in

education to enrich, inform, and complement the mainstream

teaching process. Using feedback for motivation however, has

been underutilised and undervalued throughout this process and

further highlighted with the introduction of electronic teaching and

assessments. The Open Mentor model will be explored to support

educator feedback to students via digitally assisted technologies for

formative e-Assessments. This model builds on Dweck’s research into

the role of praise as a motivator.
