Closing the Gap: What Students Say about Feedback

What do students value in terms of instructor feedback on their writing? And, how does the timing of the receipt of feedback impact the development of students’ writing skills? Turnitin recently conducted a survey of nearly 900 students to gather insights into how instructor feedback impacts the development of student writing.

In this session, we share survey results from nearly 900 students and engage in a lively conversation with a student and a college instructor about the implications of these findings for facilitating improvement in student writing.
