Feedback loops

Providing students with models and frameworks for providing feedback can be helpful.

RISE Model

  1. REFLECT - Acknowledge & Articulate
    • e.g. I really appreciated this specific aspect of your chapter because ….
  2. INQUIRE - Insight Through Analysis

    • e.g. When you said X, am I understanding that you meant XY?

    • e.g. Could you tell me more about…..

  3. SUGGEST - Ideas for Improvement

    • e.g. Have you considered…..You might want to include…..

  4. ELEVATE - Meaning Making

    • e.g. Perhaps you can expand on this...What are some of the key challenges you faced and how did you address them?

Formula for Giving Good Feedback

  2. Data Point: Name specifically what you saw or heard. Don't use blur words.

  3. Show Impact: Name how the data point impacted you positively or negatively.

  4. End on a Question: Wrap your feedback in a question, this allows for a dialogue and turns the feedback into a joint problem solving collaboration.
