Abstract

Feedback plays an important role in fostering deep learning. It is widely recognized as one of the most powerful influences on students’ learning. Meanwhile, timeliness is one of the important elements for feedback to be effective. In line with the technology development, the trend of feedback delivery has been shifted from conventional written and oral feedback to computerized feedback. It can be planned and delivered to students in a timely manner. To fully utilize the advantage of computerized feedback, students’ views should be taken into account. This study investigated students’ perception on computerized feedback through semi-structured interviews. From the results, seven themes were identified: (1) Meaning, (2) Content, (3) Comprehensibility, (4) Usefulness, (5) Timeliness, (6) Emotion, and (7) Attention. The findings of this study emphasize the needs for understanding students’ perceptions of computerized feedback to maximize its role in improving students’ performance.
