Project team members Michael Henderson, Tracii Ryan, and Michael Phillips have published a new paper in the journal Assessment and Evaluation in Higher Education. The paper presents a qualitative analysis of feedback challenges identified by 3807 students and 281 educators from two Australian universities. The findings reveal three major themes relating to feedback challenges: feedback practices, contextual constraints and individual capacity. In addition to confirming the persistence of many previously reported challenges in the literature, this paper also offers insights into challenges that are particular to feedback, especially relating to the production of useful comments and the perceived hurdles of both student and educator attitudes and capabilities. The findings also highlight the constrained nature of educators’ work, particularly in relation to time.
