Title: The effects of qualitative feedback on subsequent performance: A case of student feedback to professors
Author: Waldherr, Sonya

Abstract: The present study examined whether the addition of qualitative feedback to a traditional feedback program would result in greater performance improvement compared to quantitative feedback alone. Twelve instructors from a variety of programs received quantitative feedback, quantitative and qualitative feedback or no feedback. Analyses were based on feedback received from 694 students. It was found that participants who received both quantitative and qualitative feedback improved significantly more than those participants who did not receive any feedback and those who received quantitative feedback only. These results have implications not only for research on 360-degree feedback but it also demonstrates the utility of qualitative feedback to employee development. The limitations and practical implications of these findings are discussed.
