Knowledge of results (KR) is a very effective means for educators to communicate feedback to the learner concerning performance. When presented at the right time, in the proper amount and under advantageous circumstances, errors in learning are minimized and performance is improved. Depending on the nature of the task and the readiness of the learner, KR can be a very powerful tool to enhance the learning process.
