One hundred eighty-three elementary teachers graded a 16-item simple-addition-facts student paper. Seven mutually exclusive types of feedback were differentiated. Noncorrective feedback was used three times as frequently as corrective feedback. Among types of noncorrective feedback the least useful type was used two-thirds of the time. Teachers demonstrated limited use of the feedback strategies positively associated with student achievement.
