The data was collected through the use of a questionnaire and analysis of comments written on student essays. Results indicated that in most marked essays the teacher only wrote marks or score without commenting on students' work. Where comments were provided they were either critical (judgmental), General or vague. It was also observed that English language teacher provided most of the feedback whilst Agriculture and Social Studies teachers often did not offer any comments on students' work.
