EnA (The Evaluation and Assesment Research Group), aims to bring together internationally leading research scholars who can share their research findings in practices and process that pertain the field of teacher education.
EnA has organised focus seminars with international scholars on a regular basis. If you want to know more about EnA please visit: https://www.oslomet.no/en/research/research-groups/evaluation-assessment (oslomet.no).
Dr. Anastasiya Lipnevich, Professor of Educational Psychology, Queens College and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York.
In this presentation, I will describe a series of studies that have investigated instructional feedback, exploring its mechanisms and the diverse (and often paradoxical) effects it has on various educational outcomes. I will delve into the underlying processes that contribute to the effectiveness of instructional feedback and discuss conditions that optimize its potential for enhancing student performance, learning, and individual characteristics.
I will share research on assessment approaches employed by instructors and highlight cognitive biases that may influence assessment-related decisions made by both teachers and students. Further, I will propose strategies for equipping students with the necessary tools to generate self-feedback effectively, promoting autonomous learning.
The studies discussed in this talk will encompass a wide range of contexts, cultures, and academic disciplines, emphasizing potential pitfalls with generalizations of findings. Additionally, I will outline potential avenues for future research and highlight some of the current challenges faced by the field. By addressing these challenges, we can advance our understanding of instructional feedback and its implications for educational settings.
