Student Feedback Project 2007: findings 
The report is based on responses to questionnaires from 166 students in Humanities Languages and Social Sciences and Art Media and Design, a sample of which was then interviewed in further depth. The literature indicates students often find feedback difficult to understand and therefore difficult to use. It has been suggested in the literature that this may be a result of academics using feedback to achieve purposes associated with both formative and summative assessment. The report considers a range of student opinion and proposes that consideration be given to developing the ability of students to use feedback as part of the normal teaching activity.
