Hello, I'm a new poster (although I love reading the forums) and I'm hoping that some of you lovely people can help me. I'm just starting my third year of teaching and my school's marking policy is just being changed to '2 stars and a wish', which I've never used before. I know a bit about it, however I'm concerned about the workload as I have been told that we are using it for ALL books and we have had very little guidance on what it should look like (i.e should we refer to presentation and effort, or just relate it to the L.O!). I work in a one form entry school and I've asked various staff these questions but haven't had any answers. Is anyone else using this way of marking and can answer my questions or has any ideas how I can make this more manageable? Thanks.
