This is the eighth post in a series on Creativity across Learning with the content drawn from an unpublished report of 2011 as noted in previous chapters. It starts with a form of words from my former colleague Carolyn Hutchison. Carolyn had been the Scottish schools inspectorate's assessment specialist before working for the Scottish Government on assessment policy.
Timely, formative feedback is the life-blood of learning and progress; it is also the lifeblood of creativity.
A focus on what really matters in learning, an honest evaluation of the quality of thinking and its outcomes, shared with the learner, are critical factors in creativity. .
