Abstract

This paper focuses on the implementation of a feedback-providing program within students testing instruments and in the analysis of its impact on students´ and teachers´ perceptions concerning the learning and teaching process, during a school-year length period. This study has five main goals: (i) to know high school student’s perceptions concerning the importance of providing meaningful feedback information after test taking; (ii) to know high school teachers´ perceptions concerning the importance of providing meaningful feedback information to students after test taking; (iii) to evaluate the impact of a feedback-providing program on daily-students learning and test-taking preparation routines; (iv) to evaluate the impact of a feedback-providing program on teachers´ learning, tests´ correction and analysis; (v) to determine how teachers could, and what they really do, in reducing the gap between students ‘actual performance and desired goal attainment.
