Feedforward strategies

In order for pupils to make progress, feedback should be more work for the recipient than the donor. (Dylan Wiliam)

If feedback is to move pupils forward it can be helpful to reframe it as an instruction to do something:

Rehearse or repeat: Pupils practise something specific, each time paying attention to a particular skill, element or detail.

Revisit & respond: Requires pupils to consolidate their understanding by practising more questions, similar in style to the ones that have been assessed.
