5 Bits of Advice About: Marking

  1. Use questions instead of statements for targets. Get them thinking.
  2. Use symbols for common targets such as T: Q (meaning use quotations).
  3. Mark as much as you can in the lesson.
  4. Give kids time to respond to your marking, but don’t mark all their responses.
  5. Use lots of self assessment: it saves you time. But peer assessment is crap.
