Visible Learning – Feedback?
As a College we are focussing on feedback as an effective tool in improving student performance. Student self-assessment is shown to impact highly on a student’s improvement. Take the time to discuss your son’s overall results so far throughout the year with a particular focus on whether he expected the grades reported upon in semester 1. More importantly if he was expecting a “C Grade” why would he have assessed himself at this level when he knew what was required to achieve at a higher level. At St Dominic’s our boys have a significant advantage in receiving detailed feedforward/feedback in what it takes to succeed and they should be taking up on this opportunity.
