Taking on board your feedback can help you improve your assignments next time

This week looks at what to do with your assignment feedback.

Receiving feedback on an assignment you put loads of work into can sometimes be hard.

When you get your feedback what do you do with it …

  1. Feedback back? What feedback? Look at your grade  only, after all the assignment’s done now?
  2. Glance over the feedback but ignore it and then move on to the next thing?
  3. Spend some time examining what the feedback means and use it to improve your next assignment?

Feedback from your tutors is a really valuable resource for helping you develop, taking the comments on board can improve your mark next time you submit an assignment.

#SalfordSmart this week looks at why feedback is so useful, what your tutor’s purpose for giving you feedback is and how you can use your feedback to develop a plan for improving your marks next time. read more

I have carefully read the feedback given to me so that I can learn from it

I received my assignment and exam results which was quite a stressful time. It was quite disheartening when I didn’t get the marks I wanted on certain submissions, especially when I felt that I had worked so hard on them. This of course is just how it goes and I have carefully read the feedback given to me so that I can learn from it and ensure that I don’t repeat the same mistakes again. read more
