Using feedback to enhance learning

Feedback has the potential to dramatically improve student learning - if done correctly. In fact, providing high quality feedback is one of the most critical roles of a teacher. But if feedback is not done correctly it can have a minimal - or even negative effect - on learning. Challenging Learning Through Feedback provides educators with the tools they need to establish clear learning intentions and success criteria in order to craft high quality feedback and avoid common feedback mistakes. Readers will learn

  • When feedback is (and isn't) working
  • How to design feedback so that it answers three essential questions
  • Strategies for crafting clear Learning Intentions and Success Criteria
  • How to teach students to give high quality feedback to themselves and others

Written by educational innovators James Nottingham and Jill Nottingham, this book is full of specific examples for educators who want to understand the qualities of excellent feedback and how to craft it.

"Feedback - a noun or a verb? A separate practice or an integral part of the learning process? Something we do `to students' or `with students'? The Nottinghams sort it all out for us - the `what,' `why,' and `how' of the process and the practice of feedback."
Barb Pitchford, Co-author
Leading Impact Teams: Building a Culture of Efficacy (2016)


"Finally a practical book on feedback for teachers! It is written with the teacher in mind, lesson plan in hand, and relevant to all in education. The perfect school-wide study book!"

Industry Reviews

"This is a timely well researched, practical view into the teachers' view of Visible Learning and all this research can do to advance learning for all students. Written in an engaging, example filled, light humorous style it gives the reader some real practical examples of formative assessment strategies, clarity about learning intentions and success criteria, the essence of good lesson design. It's what we have been waiting for to make Visible Learning come alive for our teachers in the classroom."
-- Ainsley B Rose, Corwin Consultant
"This was a thought provoking read and one I will reference over and over again. The authors have created a thorough reference for all teachers working to make their feedback impact learning, not only student learning, but their own. This will be a valuable reference for educators for years to come. I think that this reaches beyond classroom walls and will also help administrators model feedback for teachers and make an impact on the growth of student achievement."
-- Katina Keener, Elementary Principal
"This book is a must-have for teachers. It's easy-to-read and easy-to-implement. Feedback provided at the right time and in the right manner increases student motivation and learning outcome. It is relevant for all grade levels."
-- Joyce Sager, Reading Teacher for Dyslexic High School Students
"A great tool for professional development and personal growth for any educator. This book is the add-on I need during feedback sessions. Teachers need the examples and explanations this book offers." -- Harry Dickens, Education Consultant
"With the rapid emergence of formative assessment used in support of learning, refinements also are emerging in our understanding of how to use of descriptive feedback during learning to promote student success. This new book provides the most up-to-date and complete treatment synthesis of those understandings. Rare is the book that offers guidance both to scholars and practitioners, but this book does both." -- Rick Stiggins, Assessment Consultant
"This book is for anyone who wants to help others get better. I found myself taking notes in chapter after chapter because of the practical advice based on succinct summaries of research and evidence. I could incorporate the ideas in my classes the next day. Nottingham and Nottingham remind us that "to assess" means "to sit beside." They come alongside us as readers to help us better understand how to move beyond advice and evaluation to feedback that leads to improvement." -- Jon Eckert, Associate Professor, Author, The Novice Advantage
"Feedback - a noun or a verb? A separate practice or an integral part of the learning process? Something we do `to students' or `with students'? The Nottinghams sort it all out for us - the `what,' `why,' and `how' of the process and the practice of feedback. A simply and elegantly organized book with tons of resources that guide educators to practice quality feedback. A `must read' for all teacher teams!" -- Barb Pitchford, Co-author
"This book is an accessible and comprehensive guide - one that provides the whole picture when it comes to offering quality feedback to deepen student learning. Each chapter ends with questions that inspired me to reflect and take a hard look at where I am in my feedback journey. Busy instructional leaders will appreciate the organizational structure of the book as well as the clear definitions and practical examples that can used to help teachers envision the ideas into practice." -- Abbey S. Duggins, Author and Assistant Principal for Instruction
"Finally a practical book on feedback for teachers! The Nottinghams cut through the hype and misinformation and brings teachers a valuable tool they will want to revisit often throughout their career. It is written with the teacher in mind, lesson plan in hand, and relevant to all in education. The perfect school-wide book study book!"
-- Lisa Cebelak, Education Consultant
"James and Jill Nottingham have once again equipped educators with practical applications and examples of how to not only increase learning, but ensure it will happen at the greatest possible levels. They provide teachers with strategies for creating the culture their classrooms need to help students reach the "Eureka moments" where learning becomes accelerated by the students...and their desire to grow and learn even more is augmented. Finally, they deliver rich guiding examples for teachers to increase teacher clarity through the development of high quality learning intentions and success criteria to help students know when they have met these intentions. This is an essential foundational element for feedback to have a place to originate from and be effective for learning. I highly recommend this book as a bucket-list read for any educator!"
-- Dave Nagel, Education Consultant and Author
"Not only does this book support teachers in developing a deep understanding of quality descriptive feedback, the authors give practical examples of how to design learning intentions and success criteria to lift the quality of feedback during lessons. The authors offer innovative feedback tools based on The Learning Challenge (The Learning Pit); these innovative tools will support teachers in ensuring that feedback is reliable and valid when partnering with students to create a true learning culture!" -- Paul Bloomberg, Education Consultant and Author
"James Nottingham's work on Challenging Learning is a critical element of creating Visible Learners. This new series will help teachers hone the necessary pedagogical skills of dialogue, feedback, questioning, and mindset. There's no better resource to encourage all learners to know and maximize their impact!"
-- John Hattie, Professor & Director, Melbourne Education Research Institute
