So, this is an interesting question. According to the authors, "students produced more high-level process comments when comparing against exemplars while they produced more task-related feedback comments when comparing against assessment criteria." And for what it's worth, "students' final grade performance was also better after exemplar comparisons." Which, I guess, gives us a definition of 'better'. The sample of 113 psychology students is neither random nor representative, so we should not draw any generalizations from this study, but it would be interesting to see whether the findings can be replicated more broadly. 30 page PDF.
