Back to Formative Assessment

Grade 6 students and their teachers from Medicine Hat Public Schools are experiencing the benefits of peer feedback.

Key Points

  • Peer feedback can be a powerful tool to support student learning.
  • Students learn to be critical users of the feedback they receive.
  • The teacher's role changes when students learn to give and receive effective feedback.

Discussion Question

  • Where could you plan a peer feedback opportunity in an upcoming student assignment? If your students are new to peer feedback, remember to start small and provide support through modelling, time for practice, and on-the-spot coaching during the feedback experience.
