Fast Cycle Feedback within the Formative platform tightens the student-teacher feedback loop by making feedback instant, meaningful, and personalized. Research shows that feedback has the power to drive foundational learning — but we don’t yet know exactly why. Fast Cycle Feedback will make it possible to study how the speed, frequency, and modality of feedback impact student achievement outcomes. The team will share the data collected with the education research community, furthering insights on effective feedback for students and teachers everywhere.
