Three by Three Feedback
The 3 x 3 x 3 template includes:
- 3 strengths
- 3 weaknesses
- 3 feed forward
The format enables tutors to provide less but better quality, more focused and actionable feedback on students’ assessed work. Staff that have started using the 3 x 3 x 3 template report that it takes a little more time to get going and build up a bank of statements but then marking becomes less onerous. Students and external examiners have reacted really positively towards the enhanced feedback, reporting that it has increased the usefulness of the feedback and its consistency across their learning.
