Research: A literature review about using technology to encourage student engagement with feedback

This journal article by Sheffield Hallam academics is a literature review of the past decade’s research into technology’s role in encouraging student engagement with feedback. This includes where technology releases feedback to students quickly, generates feedback automatically, and encourages action based on that feedback. This literature review was initially created as part of the HEA-funded Technology, Feedback, Action! research project and was updated to include literature from the two years after the research project completed.
