I have the following form that requires the receiver to submit a comment on the feedback that they receive from the requester. I would like to know if there are any good English terms that describe this situation so that I can replace the words 'Receiver Comments on Feedback' with better ones. (I would prefer to use a single word.)

I think "response" will do what you want. "Reply" or simply "comments" may also work.

So, do I just put "Receiver's response" or just the word "Response" will do? –  Jack Mar 6 '12 at 2:40
    
"Reply" came to my mind as well. "Response" works especially well if you think the additional comments may include a rebuttal. –  J.R. Mar 6 '12 at 3:47

@jack Since the feedback form is for the receiver, it's implied that the response is theirs (who else could be responding?) so yes, just response will do. –  Christi Mar 6 '12 at 8:02
    
For what it's worth, I agree with Christi. In fact, "Receiver's Response" sounds a bit confusing. (Who's the "Receiver"? That could be anyone who views the form.) –  J.R. Mar 6 '12 at 10:40
