There is no better way to inform a student of their progress than through feedback. Their motivation will be directly impacted as their interest in learning increases. As a teacher, you are able to construct your advice in a way that will help a student to rethink their beliefs about their capabilities and intelligence. This is especially useful when a learner does not believe they can accomplish a task. Teachers of subjects like mathematics, chemistry or physics should be very familiar with such cases. That is why feedback should be instructive, motivating and clarifying.
Teachers should always seize opportunities throughout the class to give their students advice. Constant reviews must be done especially at the end of the class. Teachers should also let go of the fear that to provide feedback then more practice have to be given and in turn there will be more grading to be done. That does not necessarily have to be the outcome. Teachers can also utilise properly constructed questions to prompt students and ascertain whether a particular concept is understood. Students should be encouraged to ask questions and express their opinions, whether verbally or in writing.
