Provide prescriptive, informational feedback on strategies and effort.
Teacher feedback has long-lasting implications for students' academic self-esteem, learning goals, and progress in developing knowledge and skills. Interestingly, not all positive feedback has positive impact on students. For example, referring to students' ability as a fixed trait, as a compliment or as evaluation, may hamper students' learning. Teachers should provide feedback that directly addresses students' levels of effort, and that reiterates, in a positive tone and a manner aligned with the students' learning styles, strategies to solve problems.
