Feedback has been identified as an approach to provide information about students' performance in order to help and guide them in planning for the attainment of the learning goals and to improve their behavior and skills. However, it is important to understand that the mere provision of feedback won't meet the purpose of closing the feedback gap and it has to be supplemented with follow-up actions and evaluation of the entire process of feedback to measure the change in behavior. It is quite essential to understand that in order to ensure that the process of evaluation of feedback remains effective and meets the intended objectives, it has to be planned in a systematic manner and that too well in advance. In conclusion, evaluation of feedback has to be a continuous process and the criteria for the same has to be explicitly defined for better planning and corrective measures based on the obtained results.
