Feedback is widely used to enhance performance, but its definition lacks clarity in the literature, leading to misconceptions such as immediate feedback being more effective than delayed feedback and feedback being a consequence of behavior. This presentation from the 2021 Michigan Autism Conference aims to address these misconceptions by discussing feedback’s function as an antecedent to behavior and proposing a clearer definition in line with applied behavior analysis principles.

Feedback is a common and evidence-based practice to improve performance. While feedback is widely used and researched in the training and educational settings, the literature does not provide a clear and consistent definition for feedback. Due to the unclear definition, two misconceptions are evident in the feedback literature: (a) immediate feedback is more effective then delayed feedback, and (b) feedback serves as a consequence to behavior. In this talk the misconceptions of immediate feedback and the function of feedback will be discussed in light of the vague definition of feedback in the behavioral literature. A clearer definition which meets all seven dimensions of applied behavior analysis will be suggested and recent study results will be presented to propose that feedback serves as an antecedent to performance and therefore should be provided immediately before the behavior. The talk will end with a number of suggestions for future research.

    This was a fantastic presentation on research regarding immediate feedback versus delayed feedback. The author presented a well reasoned argument, as well as her research on the importance of feedback that is immediate to the delivery of an intervention. This was a very thought-provoking presentation..
