Comment-based marking

Discussion in 'History' started by ian666, Aug 22, 2011.

  1. Have spent five years explaining to puzzled children why they should be 3a instead of 3c and what they need to do to get there....moving to a new job and have read about the comment-based marking where the pupils only get goals/advice instead of a Level 4-7 for assessments. Any thoughts or advice? Anything you would not do if you did it?
    Thanks.

  3. We already do this, we only level three bits of work a year as assessments (under protest considering Levels are designed as end of key stage descriptors!) and these have a comment as well as the level. A good place to start if you haven't done much of this before is the AfL idea of 2 stars and a wish...so two good things the piece does and then a 'wish' i.e. an improvement that could be made. It is so much more meaningful marking and the kids do get used to it even if they have been brought up on a diet of disgusting divided levels!! Good luck :)
     
  4. Great! Thankyou very much for that!
