Six Personal Tutors trialled the Feedback Passport with their first year personal tutees and reported on the effectiveness of the tool. Students were also surveyed to determine their reaction to the ‘Feedback Passport’.

The reactions to the ‘Feedback Passport’ have been mixed. Feedback from the Personal Tutors indicated that the main issues were the large size (A4 file) and the number of pages (information overload). However, feedback from students was positive, the main consensus being that it would be very helpful for use during Part A but would need commitment from the Personal Tutors to ensure that students engaged with it and completed the pages after receipt of each coursework feedback.

In principle, the Feedback Passport is seen to be beneficial but the medium of delivery is unwieldy. Future incorporation into Co-Tutor should resolve the issues.
