The use of visual feedback to enhance the teaching and learning of comprehension skills

Usually the marking of comprehension simply means ticks and crosses on students’, work.With these, students might not necessarily understand what exactly is wrong with theiranswers, even after the teacher has gone through the answers in class. Hence to ensure thateach student is given personal feedback on their work, we developed a set of symbols forthem to look at and immediately know what exactly went wrong with their answers. This willbe more effective as students can be constructive in their learning of comprehension skillsand do better in future comprehension practices and tests.The pilot class was from the Secondary One Express cohort. The students were given onecomprehension practice, which the teacher marked and provided visual feedback in the formof four key symbols. Students were taught how to interpret the symbols so as to have a betterunderstanding of the kinds of errors they make and can hence avoid. Students then sat for acomprehension test, for which they scored better even though it was harder.Visual feedback is a useful error analysis strategy that can help guide the teachers in theirlesson planning as the authentic responses of the students can help determine the level ofmastery of specific comprehension skills. ,Key words: visual feedback, enhance teaching and learning, comprehension
