Understanding student responses to online feedback and digital recommendations
What kinds of feedback are most useful to students? How do students respond to feedback presented in a digital environment? As part of a research team designing educational technology interfaces, we conducted a set of user design workshops that explored how students prefer to receive feedback on their work products during drafting and final submissions. The workshop also examined student preferences in receiving feedback in dynamic systems (e.g., online learning systems). Based on the workshops, we designed varying levels of online feedback, including conceptual feedback, feedback on error types, and digital resource recommendations while students worked on an essay writing task. Results inform our understanding of what constitutes adequate feedback during project drafts and final submissions, especially in online environments. In this session, we will present our findings about how students respond to feedback in an online environment and discuss implications for teaching.
