This study investigated teacher-candidates’ attitudes about perceived benefits of annotations of video-recorded lessons as feedback to their teaching-performance. Researchers view video-annotated feedback as a tool that has the opportunity to mediate teacher-candidates’ instructional practice in unique ways. Twenty-five teacher-candidates were coached by university-supervisors who annotated video recordings of instruction; another 20 teacher-candidates served as a comparison group. Participants rank-ordered six sources of feedback and explained their ranking. All participants rated guide-teachers’ oral feedback highest. Teacher-candidates valued using video-annotation over mentors’ written feedback. Qualitative analysis of explanations supports these findings and describe the unique role that video-annotation provides in teachers’ professional development. This study highlights that feedback source and quality mediates teacher-candidates’ perception and use of the feedback. Moreover, data show how video-annotations contribute to development of pedagogical skills as measured by the edTPA, a teaching performance assessment.
