What is your advice about? Marking

1: Keep on top of it! Little & often means it won’t turn into an impassable mountain.

2: Cycle through peer assessment, self assessment & teacher marking = you only mark 1/3.

3: Scaffold peer/self-assessment. Turn success criteria into tick boxes so students give meaningful advice.

4: Make sure they act on it! Anything that didn’t get a tick (above) in and “EBI” must be redrafted.

5: Don’t mark everything. Starters etc usually don’t need marking. Focus efforts on extended pieces.
