 Chat Details


Hosted by WeNurses using #WeNurseAcademics

This chat is guest hosted by @melhayward @Helenski17

Assessment feedback and feedforward in both theory and practice are one of the supportive systems used by Nurse Academics, Practice Educators, Assessors and Supervisors to assist in the advancement of nursing students’ professional and academic knowledge, skills, and behaviours.

It entails delivering information to students with the purpose of reducing the discrepancy between their current and desired performance as well as focusing on their future development.

Although assessment feedback and feedforward are widely acknowledged as important elements in nurse education, it is a component in which nurse educators often fall short and student nurses find problematic to receive and act upon. 

This tweet chat explores some of the key issues surrounding assessment feedback and feedforward and seeks views regarding our roles, its future development, and use.

We'll be working our way through the following chat polls and questions for the chat:

Pre-chat Polls:

•  Are Nurse Educators clear about how to deliver good quality assessment feedback to student nurses?
Why is feedforward on assessment so important for student nurses to receive?

Chat questions:

•  What do you think are the most important principles in delivering theory/academic and practice assessment feedback and feedforward to student nurses?

•  Should Nurse Academics play a role in supporting Practice Supervisors and Practice Assessors with delivering feedback and feedforward for assessment in practice? If so, how?

•  What are the barriers to delivering effective feedback and feedforward on theoretical/academic assessment to student nurses?And how can Nurse Academics overcome these?

•  How can we all encourage student nurses to access, use and value their assessment feedback and feedforward more successfully?
