Advances and Innovations in University Assessment and Feedback

Charles Anderson

Edinburgh University Press

Charles Anderson considers the importance of sensitive tailoring of our approaches to communication for specific situations and audiences, and applies this particularly to the practices of feedback. The theoretical basis for this chapter lies in the work of Norwegian psycholinguist Ragnar Rommetveit, whose work on inter-subjective communication has also influenced Dai Hounsell. Anderson addresses the significant lack of analysis of the nature of communication in the literature on assessment and feedback. Drawing on Rommetveit, Anderson places particular emphasis on context and perspective in terms of meaning making. This then has implications for how we give, and how students understand, feedback, particularly within different disciplinary and professional learning contexts

Keywords:   Nature of communication in providing feedback, Intersubjective communication, Meaning-making
