Providing immediate feedback
The role of feedback in promoting successful learning outcomes is well documented. Research indicates that the most effective feedback is specific to the particular task at hand and provides concrete information on how the student is performing. Effective feedback also shows how each task will connect to subsequent content. Research generally indicates that feedback is most effective when it is provided immediately.
Pearson MyLab Programming offers students feedback that is specific, clear, and timely.
- Students receive targeted hints immediately at the point of error.
- Code is analyzed, and feedback is provided, line by line.
Thanks to this immediate, targeted feedback, Pearson MyLab Programming helps novice programmers master individual coding skills while working towards a deep understanding of the complex, multi-step process of programming.
