As students learn through the virtual middle school curriculum they are motivated to complete each unit of work and can track their progress and results.
An important dimension of feedback is its immediacy. The longer the time gap between the completion of the work and its feedback, the less effective the feedback becomes. Ideally, feedback should be provided within minutes after the completion of a task (e.g. immediately after a children asks or answers a question). Feedback should also be given to children as frequently as possible. Ideally, a child should receive feedback for each and every assigned task in the process.
