It is my schools policy that we mark books every week! We are marked on the frequency of marking and if this does not hit a grade of 1 which means consistently then we automatically get a grade of requires improvement. All other areas can be outstanding. My books have been marked for 80 percent of the time so far this term but no i get an RI and told that the books where near outstanding. Is weekly marking excessive. I have around 110 books to mark each week. Many schools operate a fortnightly marking policy. I tried so hard in marking these books. In other establishments my marking has been a strength and i have always been rated as a good marker.
