Any feedback report has to include qualitative feedback — that is, free form feedback that describes how the subject performs and how to improve.
In my experience the feedback I’ve seen hasn’t been as useful as feedforward. It’s been more feedback, which generally means evaluation of an unchangeable u, but feedback can still be useful.

Needless to say, free form feedback and advice from outside sources who care can be invaluable for know what areas to change and how.
