One way of systematically reviewing the feedback you receive on coursework and other learning tasks is to collect and collate the comments your receive in a consistent way. Phil Race suggests that you can develop a pro-forma and keep notes on your feedback so that you are prompted to consider what it really means and see trends and developments over time. Here is an example pro-forma but you are encouraged to customise it to suit your own needs and style.
"When you've given in a piece of writing to a colleague, a peer or supervisor for feedback - what kind of feedback helps ..."
"Well, I think it's important for the feedback not to be too detailed ..."
"I think that when I first started my postgraduate research degree I needed a bit of confidence building. I was hoping that people would say that I could write OK ..."
