Teacher feedback can be most successful if it can be acted upon immediately, for example, within a science and technology lesson. The focus of this lesson was for pupils to design the most effective packaging to ensure that eggs would not be broken when being taken to market. The teacher gave pupils feedback about how to improve during the lesson. For example, one group of children were refocused from consideration of the landing surface to look more closely at the package development. Another group had forgotten that the package would actually need to open to hold the egg. Both groups of pupils listened to feedback and produced a more effective package.
