What is your advice about? AFL

  1. Make sure that feedback is tangible and precise (rather than vague comments like ‘improve your spelling’)
  2. Don’t be afraid to go back over a topic instead of moving forward if you feel students’ understanding is not as strong as it should be.
  3. Try to make your planning and assessing one and the same – let your marking inform your planning to use your time more efficient.
  4. Don’t be afraid to ask students and reflect on whether something is working – if assessment is ineffective or inefficient then how could you improve it?
  5. Remember WHY we mark – it’s not for monitoring or Ofsted – it’s for the students! If they don’t benefit, the assessment isn’t effective.
