The Analysis of Feedback as a Distinguishing Feature in the Accomplishments of a Teacher Training Project

Publication Date: 
December 2008

A distinctive feature of the Caribbean Centre of Excellence for Teacher Training Project is its use of feedback to bring about improvements in various aspects of the work it undertakes and to guide decisionmaking. The feedback is used both formatively and summatively in the assessment of planning and management operations, in the assessment of project inputs and in the assessment of student achievement. The article analyses this feedback using three twin concepts: (a) assessment/or compliance and assessment of compliance, (b) assessment/or delivery and assessment of delivery, and (c) assessment/or learning and assessment/ of learning. The author is of the view that these concepts should contribute to a more comprehensive analysis of project implementation and outcomes in educational projects.
