Comparative Writing Judgements ?!?!

    I am looking for some thoughts on using comparative writing judgement in the primary setting. I understand the premise of it and the amount of schools now using this as a way of assessing writing is undeniable but I am a little confused about HOW we deem one piece of writing to be better than another. Obviously for many pieces of writing this will be obvious but what if we compare 2 pieces of writing that are 'similar': one which has fantastic composition and grammatical agreement but appalling punctuation and one with outstanding punctuation and grammar but is boring and not particularly well written- which is better? Also- in the climate of TA against the frameworks at the end of key stage and using a portfolio of evidence rather than 1 cold piece of writing, how have schools integrated the comparative judgement model into their school assessment schedule and especially into Y2 and 6 without increasing workload?

    Thanks for reading if you got this far!!!

    No- just trying to see how other schools have used this as our MAT is keen for us to and other schools locally are. We currently have a system for moderating writing which we are confident and happy with so seeing how we might adapt to use this too
