Utilizing the SCARF Model: A Better Way for Making Feedback Effective
SCARF model, Feedback, Self-awareness
Giving feedback to students is an essential part of teachers' jobs. However, delivering crafted feedback that results in students' success in the class is very challenging. In this proposal, we introduce the SCARF model as a useful tool in preparing feedback givers and feedback receivers for productive discourse. SCARF evaluates individuals' social motivation based on five indicators: status, certainty, autonomy, relatedness, and fairness. We propose that using SCARF assessment can raise awareness among both instructors and students to diminish some of the possible resistance in giving and receiving feedback.
