The aim of the study was to provide insight into the quality of teaching in Icelandic lower-secondary schools, specifically how teachers use feedback in their teaching and whether the purpose of lessons is stated and clear. The data comprise 75 language arts and mathematics lessons that were video recorded in 10 schools. The data were analysed according to the PLATO protocol, a standardized observation instrument for quality teaching, and representative examples of clear purpose and constructive feedback from the data are presented for context. The study's findings indicate limited evidence of clear purpose and quality feedback to students.
