Does your school do it? How has it been received by the pupils/teachers/parents?

Looks interesting to me! But no experience of it.

Do you mean whole class feedback? There are no rules at our school, per se(happily) and I have quite often used whole class feedback. I'm a weirdo, though, and like marking, so I also mark the work!

WCF works with a receptive class who listen but imo it can take up a lot of lesson time and requires them to listen carefully and extrapolate from it what they need to focus on. All this focus on feedback and there still is not a proper, proven methodology!

Never had a complaint from any angle about it.

WCF works well IF you use it with a focus on learning.

Look for the misconception and the ask class to answer question (s) based on what you found and the extend learning.

I found it's cut my marking load. I use direct feedback in class to the students and then WCF too. Only a few pieces a term are deep marked. Use visualiser to show good work and get class to feedback on why it's good, or use it for someone who's stuck as to 'what next' etc. But you need a class who are supportive of each other.

But I'm secondary and not a core subject so aware your situation is very different.
