Did you know...Goodwin & Miller, (2012) found that giving effective, timely, and clear feedback to students translated into a 28% higher achievement rate by students compared to those counterparts that did not receive feedback. 28%! It is clear that students who review their own achievement data, set, and monitor their own goals out-achieve those students who do not have these types of habits. Of course, this needs to be done in a healthy, balanced manner. Test scores aren’t everything; although they can provide key insights for teachers and parents.
