Introduction: Successful learning process expressed as the main goal of any educational system, and a tool to achieve this goal is effective feedback to students, because researches showed that feedback on learning and learners' motivation in learning is effective. One of the purposes of this research is to identify and categorize feedback characteristics based on research literature. Another purpose investigates the effects of these characteristics on effective feedback.
Materials and Methods: Statistical population of this research was the students of Jahad University of Ahvaz in the year of 2013. Validity and reliability (%91.3) were confirmed on the basis of preliminary. Conceptual model of study was designed based on a literature study and the relationship between its structures was determined. The sampling was performed by stratified random sampling method. One hundred seventy five (175) filled questionnaires from two hundred (200) distributed questionnaires were returned. Structural equation modeling was used to examine hypothesizes of this research, and AMOS software was used in this study.
Results: Results showed the type, structure and timing of feedback respectively with coefficient's 0.53, 0.64 and 0.85 had a significant effect on effective feedback on %95 level of confidence, and therefore findings confirmed all hypotheses.
Conclusion: From Ahvaz Jahad University students' point of view, the three characteristics of type, structure and timing of feedback had been received, have a significant effect on effectiveness of feedback, and among the three characteristics of feedback timing has the maximum effect on effectiveness of feedback.
