Abstract: This study explores the types of feedback that teachers convey to different ability groups as well as to boys and girls. A questionnaire comprising of 8 scenarios on the successes and failures of high-achievers (HA) and students with learning difficulties (LD) were used to elicit feedback responses from 358 primary six teachers (101 males and 256 fema1es)from 53 schools in Singapore. In general, teacher feedback tends to be more positive for high achievers than for LD students. There were significant differences in the type of teacher feedback found for both HA and LD students as well as for gender. Further research is necessary in identifying the types of teacher feedback that will assist the motivational orientations and strategic learning of students.
