ABSTRACT
The article discusses feedback in education, and argues that feedback should not only be given to students by teachers but that student should be given the opportunity to provide teachers with feedback. Advice on eliciting feedback from students is offered, and the use of learning targets partially designed by students is commented on. The assertion that allowing students to tell teachers directly what they need in order to succeed is useful and necessary for learning is examined, and the importance of timeliness is touched on.
