Providing Feedback

Last revised: 19 Jan 2023

Providing feedback

Feedback is an important aspect of all WBA activities. Giving feedback in the context of an assessment can be challenging. It requires active involvement of the registrar. When undertaking an assessment, it is important to record specific details about your registrar’s performance for use in the feedback discussion. The feedback discussion should be learner-centric and start with your registrar’s self- assessment and an understanding of the areas they would like feedback on. Discuss what they did well, to reinforce this behaviour, and areas that need further development; suggestions for activities and resources to facilitate learning in these areas is also helpful.

Feedback about a registrar's performance should be thoroughly documented including narrative comments, as these can be used to verify performance ratings and provide valuable information to help direct the focus of future assessments. Registrars are encouraged to reflect on each assessment and the feedback provided to guide their learning.

All assessors are responsible for creating an environment of mutual trust, respect, and honesty to help foster the registrar’s learning and self-reflection.
