Types of Feedback and Their Purposes
by Susan M. Brookhart The purpose of giving immediate or only slightly delayed feedback is to help students hear it and use it. Feedback needs to come while students are still mindful of the topic, assignment, or performance in question.

It especially needs to come while they still have some reason to work on the learning target. Figure 2.1. Good timing: Returning tests and assignments promptly.
