Answer: Why is it important for an instructor to consider student performance data when providing feedback? How can feedback be both observational and instructional?
It is important to include student performance data when providing feedback because it adds support to your feedback. For example, in my student feedback I mentioned to the student that she had done a great job with being detailed in 2 of 3 tasks. The one task that the student lacked in depth information directly correlated with a ticket out the door question which this student did not get right. If the student can see a correlation between their work and assessments they will be more apt to change. Feedback can be both observational and instructional by including what you have noticed during class time. For example, I congratulated this student on being a part of a great discussion during the collaboration portion of the lesson.
