Feedback is defined as information based on a task to improve performance, and often times when students’ work is graded, we overlook the importance of meaningful feedback by providing just a letter grade. Meaningful feedback on assignments enhances critical thinking, reflective practice, and develops instructor-student relationships which is important in an online environment. While feedback fosters reflection, correction and performance extension, it also increases student motivation as they feel the instructor is interested in their success. -Amy Rottmann and Salena Rabidoux (Inside Higher Ed)
