[Desmos Design] Why We’re Suspicious of Immediate Feedback

If feedback is immediate you will wonder if it came from a real person or from a bot. Computerized Bots are everywhere online now. It’s also hard to know if the person providing the feedback gave it any real thought or if they just wrote whatever they thought was wanted at the time.

Key Takeaways:

  • Computers have an enormous advantage over humans in their ability to quickly give students feedback on certain kinds of work.
  • we side with Silicon Valley’s preference for immediate feedback.
  • I couldn’t use trial and error. I had to visualize and estimate and then make decisions.

“One of our design principles at Desmos is to “delay feedback for reflection, especially during concept development activities.””
