Diagnostic marking and planning

Discussion in 'Assessment' started by rachlkay83, Apr 12, 2011.

  1. Hi, please could someone explain to me what diagnostic marking and planning is.

    Is it doing something like 2 stars and a wish, then planning something in the next session to cover the wish?

    To me 'diagnostic marking' is akin to a Dr.s diagnosis; so assessing a level or grade (just like a Dr look at the evidence to decide what's wrong with you) & planning the prescription or treatment, so 'How to improve/ reach the next level' etc.
    I find 2 stars & a wish is generally used for self/peer assessment wheras 'diagnostic marking & planning' is very much done by the teacher.
    Bit simplistic but I hope it makes it easy to understand. Others may suggest other options.
