What means FEEDBACK?

Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Here is what the Online Dictionary says:

Main Entry: feed·back
Pronunciation: 'fEd-"bak
Function: noun
Date: 1920
1 : the return to the input of a part of the output of a machine, system, or process (as for producing changes in an electronic circuit that improve performance or in an automatic control device that provide self-corrective action)
2 a : the partial reversion of the effects of a process to its source or to a preceding stage b : the transmission of evaluative or corrective information to the original or controlling source about an action, event, or process; also : the information so transmitted


Just imagine that you had to do a project in front of the class. What is said afterwards about how you did (evaluation) is "feedback" for you, so you'll know how to improve the next time.
