Quality written feedback is one of the factors that make up a good online class. The current research studied seven classes of students using two different levels of feedback prompts. The results showed that the Level 1 feedback prompt resulted in 39% of students reading their feedback. The Level 2 feedback prompt showed a 44% overall feedback reading rate for students taking online classes. The 44% of students In the Level 2 prompt reading their online written feedback is a large 10% increase in students’ reading their online written feedback from the 34% found in the original study [5]. Further analysis were completed related to when the students most read their online written feedback in the course and whether there is any difference in reading rates for minor versus major assignments. Directions for future studies are provided.
