Consistent Marking & Feedback across your school: a realist’s guide to marking and assessment

Would you like to ensure your marking and feedback allows your pupils to:

Make rapid progress 

✔  Deepen their learning 

Know how to improve 

Become more engaged 

  • Would you like your teachers to mark smarter, not harder and develop a practical toolkit for more effective marking?
  • Does your marking, feedback & assessment have a positive impact on pupil wellbeing? How do you know?
  • Are you prepared for ISI’s latest collaborative work book inspections?

Given the focus in the current ISI framework on pupil wellbeing it is essential that teachers and leaders get to grips with these strategies and the benefits that can be made from some small changes in their practice. This course also presents how the research shows that improving marking and feedback is the number one way of adding value to pupil progression and attainment and presents practical ways to mark smarter.

This highly interactive course will allow teachers to achieve the following outcomes:

  • Mark smarter, not harder: plans for reduce marking time

  • Implement peer-and self-assessment techniques
  • Strategies for implementing self-reported grades
  • Personalise learning through differentiated and qualitative feedback
