A realist’s guide to marking and feedback

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 inspectors define as outstanding practice in marking ?
  • Are you prepared for the latest work book inspections?

Given the focus in current inspections frameworks 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.

A really excellent day- thank you!
