Abstract

Feedback is a well-researched topic, with some empirical research focusing on students’ own perceptions of feedback. However, teachers’own perceptions of feedback remain to be an area not covered by much research. This study, therefore, attempts to shed light on this by interviewing six teachers at two upper secondary schools in Stockholm. The teachers were asked about their perceptions on giving feedback on students’ writing, as well as the constraints in feedback practice. A qualitative method was applied, with structured interviews supported by an analysis of written feedback samples collected from the same participants. The aim of this study was to investigate teachers’ perceptions of feedback on writing in English. The findings suggest that there is a chasm between the actual and ideal feedback practice. This gap exists due to a range of constraints. The interviews and the samples indicate that one of the most important constraints is the lack of education on feedback. In order to enhance the actual feedback practice, these constraints need to be taken seriously. Decreasing the gap between the actual and the ideal feedback practice can be solved by expanding the field of school-and classroom-based research.
