Teacher Response to Student Writing


Question: What types of teacher responses on student writing were associated with higher performance levels?

Answer: “Investigated the effects of two types of written teacher comments on four specific writing behaviors of 55 fourth-grade children; corrective feedback was generally associated with higher performance levels that was positive feedback on all variables.”  TS Schroeder. 1973. P. 415.

Comment: What does “corrective feedback” mean? Does it mean correcting spelling, etc.? How is the correcting done? RayS.
