Arthritis & Marking

Discussion in 'Workplace dilemmas' started by Armchair Rebel, Jan 28, 2012.

  1. I have been diagnosed with Osteoarthritis in my hands and fingers, I have started to find marking hard work and painful. Has anyone else used a label maker/printer for marking?

    If so what have you found useful or successful?

    Many Thanks!
  2. My old maths teacher used to print out comments for us -I wonder if this was why? They were easier to read than those of lots of teachers.
  3. @Armchair Rebel : To limit the amount of writing you have to do how about a stamp that you can stamp on their work. Then you just circle the level/effort grade/GCSE grade and put a small positive comment and a small improvement comment. We got ours from stampfactory (dot) co (dot) uk. Chose the COLOP 60 and you can design you own self inking stamp.

    The little comments just reinforce (and record) the verbal discussions that you have with the kids.
