R. L. Bangert-Drowns et al., "The instructional Effect of Feedback in Test-Like Events," Review of Educational Research, 61:2 (1991), 213-238. This study reported a metaanalysis of 40 studies that showed that (a) immediate feedback is more effective than feedback that is delayed a day or more after a test, and (b) providing guidance about correct answers is more effective than feedback that merely informs students whether their answers were correct or not.
