What does the research say about feedback best practices?
While feedback is commonly seen as pieces of information, it's actually a complex process. Simply giving our students more feedback is not the solution. For feedback to result in transformative learning, we must go beyond just transmitting actionable information and design feedback systems that teach students feedback literacy skills and give them the agency to act on their feedback. We've compiled the most current research in feedback so you can learn along with us.

Here’s what teachers say about Floop...
"The biggest difference Floop makes is the turnaround in feedback. In past years, people make the same mistakes over and over again. This year, I've seen students improve a lot more."
HS STEM Teacher
"I was able to give higher-quality and more detailed, extensive, in-depth feedback using Floop. By hand, knowing that I’m going to give 15 kids the same feedback, I need to abbreviate and use shorter words so that I’m not giving the first kid really good feedback and then the last kid just ‘wrong'."
HS Math Teacher
"I really like the drag and drop and how it counts for me. I can see how strong a misconception really was; it’s clear that 12/15 people have this idea."
HS Physics and Engineering Teacher
