This study aims to delve deeper into the topic of utilizing specific student feedback to improve overall academic performance. The researcher of this study will utilize specific types of feedback on fifth grade elementary mathematics students receiving advanced academics curriculum in order to demonstrate the extent to which feedback improves student learning. This topic is worthy of investigation because it is important to give students feedback in mathematics in order for student work improvement. Mathematical feedback that is related to standards and relevant to students’ work, guides students to more effective learning and can increase their overall academic learning. Some techniques for delivering feedback include one-to-one conferencing which includes observation and the show me technique, written feedback, small group checklists, and individualized feedback forms. Based on the information described and data collected, students showed greater academic achievement upon receiving small group feedback.
