Design of feedback is a critical issue of online assessment development within Web-based Learning Systems (WBLSs). In our work we demonstrate the possibilities of tailoring the feedback to the students’ learning style (LS), certitude in response and its correctness. We observe in the experimental studies that these factors have a significant influence on the feedback preferences of students and the effectiveness of elaborated feedback (EF), i.e. students’ performance improvement during the test. These observations helped us to develop a simple EF recommendation approach. Our experimental study shows that (1) many students are eager to follow the recommendations on necessity to read certain EF in the majority of cases; (2) the students more often find the recommended EF to be useful, and (3) the recommended EF helped to answer related questions better.
