Crafting student feedback to enable deliberate practice

Submitted by Kate Plass, Franklin & Marshall College

So, I am a few chapters into "Talent is Overrated" focused on the concept of deliberate practice and I am starting to panic. The idea of deliberate practice as I understand it is that no one gets great at a skill without long periods of practice that are designed by an expert to focus on the aspects of the skills the learner specifically needs to work on. I am uncertain that the exam feedback I give, pointing out which problems are incorrect and providing detailed solutions, does not allow students to know exactly how to practice to improve.
