Experimenting with different forms of assessment

    Hello!

    I'm an English assessment co-ordinator, and wondering if anyone could help.
    As an English teacher of year 7,8,9,10,11 and 13, I have found the mark load phenomenal. So this year I've decided that experimenting with different forms of assessment might be a good idea. I think it would boost pupil engagement and make it quicker to mark for teachers, and more interesting. However, I want to be able to gain the same amount of understanding with regards to the skills learnt/text analysis from the pupils.

    Has anyone else experimented with different forms of assessment? Or do you have any ideas?

    Thanks, and I look forward to seeing some responses! :)

    Shabs :)
