Marking - how often and how detailed?

    So how has the not using any comments and only allowing pointing out errors impacted student progress? You imply you’ve implemented this policy with the quoted comment @install so how is it working for you? I would just like to know :)

    Nicely put. But good feedback is not the same as spoonfeeding. The purpose of it is to show the student 'how they could have done that better', then send them away to make the improvement themselves.

    Spoonfeeding is the same as over marking though ...or helping the student too much. Good marking can very quickly become 'stagnant' if done excessively. Over marking 'drowns' out the student's chances of being independent and realising the teacher is not always the 'oracle'..:cool:

    Why won’t you answer a simple question @install ? This is now the fourth or fifth time I’ve asked this and you seem to be deliberately ignoring me. Have you actually implemented the ideas you have mentioned multiple times in this thread or not? How have they impacted on student outcomes? It’s a fairly straightforward question and one I think should be asked when you are advocating that your idea is better than other people’s on here.
