ISI Excellent Marking: 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 to mark smarter, not harder and develop a practical toolkit for more effective marking?
Do you know what ISI define as Excellent Marking?
Are you prepared for ISI’s latest work book inspections?
Given the focus in the current ISI framework on improving pupil outcomes 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
- Unpick ISI’s criteria for marking and assessment
- Surpass ISI’s expectations for work book inspections
- Clarify the Hattie meta-analysis research and its impact on effective teaching
- Develop a consistent approach to marking
- Create a meaningful “marking dialogue” to produce real and lasting change
- Implement peer-and self-assessment techniques
- Personalise learning through differentiated and qualitative feedback
- Provide feedback with clear direction on how to improve
- Demonstrate progress from marking and feedback
Thank you very much, truly thought provoking and some wonderfully useful strategiesBen Barter, Head of Pupil Progress, St Andrews Prep, Eastbourne
