Pupil friendly GCSE marking criteria

    I was thinking about creating a pupil friendly GCSE marking criteria sheet and was wondering if there was one on here somewhere that I could use as a starting point. I think it will be really useful for the pupils and feel that they may be more inclined to do certain tasks if they can see how they are linked to the marking scheme.
    Any advice or ideas would be great :)

  2. Hi
    Be careful, creating student friendly criteria can dumb down the concepts, leaving only the activities. This can lose students the higher marks if the statements are not sufficiently sharp. Better to help the students learn and address the more complex statements. If they can't understand these statements, they are not going to achieve the outcomes.

    Ok thanks, that makes sense.
