IMPACT

Marking and Assessment

Exercise books are for pupils to take down class notes and express their learning and develop thoughts. Therefore, the marking of class work is not required so is not routine practice, but AFL is present in the form of quizzes.

Home learning tasks are set weekly which are teacher marked. Shorter tasks will be peer/ self-assessed. General and specific comments are given for pupils to then self/ peer correct which is done using the camera in class. The tasks are varied and feedback will take the most appropriate form.

Modelling of marking and feedback on home learning is done in detail to the whole class using the camera. Key ideas/ theories and misconceptions are visible using the camera and are then highlighted and corrected in this way onto pupil work. Feedback is verbal and this is to the whole class, but individuals may be highlighted too. 

Extended writing home learning tasks are marked and recorded by the teacher, which are normally every 6 lessons. Formative assessments are marked immediately by the teacher and marks recorded each term.

Examinations

Assessments are modular and completed at the end of each term.
