Abstract: We analysed 211 003 technology-enhanced feedback notes by using profile analysis in order to evaluate, whether students (N=7811) are treated and encouraged equally based on teachers’ feedback practices. According to identified profiles, students received feedback differently and some students received more negative feedback compared to positive feedback. Preliminary results show also that, unfortunately, students with special education needs received less encouragement than students in general education. The impact of technology-enhanced feedback on well-being of students are discussed. Keywords: technology-enhanced feedback, basic education, special- and general education
