"By emphasizing feedback as modelling classroom behaviour, practising reflective thinking and acknowledging the moral-ethical part of "humane teaching and assessment! (Merry et al. 2013, Foreword), the responsibility that it takes to provide feedback to learners and/or peers and the ability to judge quality (Sadler 2013), readers are given useful and specific guidelines for the teaching profession itself - outside the academia." - Szilvia Barta, University of Debrecen, The Hungarian Educational Research Journal.
