Summary
Students are frequently called upon to offer oral critiques after their peers make presentations in the classroom. If students are to demonstrate critical listening skills and achieve basic objectives of introductory speaking courses, feedback skills need to be developed. It has been the undertaking of this study to examine feedback accuracy by looking at honesty, specificity, and completeness when giving feedback. This study has also examined feedback strategies and ways in which they contribute to accuracy. This study found that students do not know when they are offering accurate feedback. Students perceived they were being accurate when experts determined they were not accurate. This study also determined that relationships play an important role in feedback. Students need to feel an obligation to be helpful to other students. Students need to recognize their responsibility as audience members to offer accurate feedback. The importance of relationships when offering feedback was also demonstrated through use of facework. Students want to present themselves in a positive light; therefore, they primarily offer positive feedback, downplay errors, and use vagueness when offering feedback. Another finding from this study is feedback accuracy may be predicted by feedback strategy. Directness and explanation were positive predictors of honesty. Directness was a positive predictor of completeness, and explanation and directness were positive predictors of specificity and overall accuracy. This suggests when directness and explanation are selected strategies, perception of accurate feedback increases. It is important for individuals involved in the feedback process to implement these strategies for maximum perceived accuracy. If feedback is to perform its primary function of self-improvement, then accuracy must be paramount. Further, individuals need to be sensitive to the context of the relationship when offering feedback. Accuracy should not be sacrificed, but allowing the recipient to maintain face is essential for feedback to function properly
