FeedPulse is based on didactic insights. Research shows longitudinal testing and feedback is a crucial component in learning.
“All individual tests are important measurements, but at the same time limited in value. The set of measurements, however, provides rich information to be able to take robust decisions.” (van der Vleuten, 2011)
"Feedback is seen as an important element in formative testing. Filling the gap between actual performance and the desired performance is key." (Hattie & Timperley, 2007)
