I’d say on the whole the feedback I give is at the first, second and fourth level. Much of my feedback is specific and students state that they understand where the course is going. However, I am certainly guilty of using self-feedback and was interested to see how relatively useless that is. On the other hand, it is mostly paired with specific marks on a rubric so students can see where they went off track.
I think in order to improve effectiveness I need to address the needs of collectivistic and individualistic participants. I also need to focus on helping students learn to self-regulate by highlighting the strategies they use that are successful.
