Transcript of Feedback and Marking - getting the balance right...

Feedback and Marking
Feedback is most effective when students don't have proficiency or mastery and thus it thrives when there are errors or incomplete knowing and understanding. Errors invite opportunity. They should not be seen as embarrassments or signs of failure, or something to be avoided. They are exciting because they indicate tension between what we know and what we could know. They are signs of opportunity and should be embraced.

Feedback and Marking

What we know is that verbal feedback has the most impact on the children's learning. What does this look like and how do you manage this with 30 children? Discuss and share practice including symbols.
Making it work...
"If schools adopt mixed ability approach, they are more likely to use inclusive strategies and to promote higher aspirations for their pupils."

Sutton Trust Report 2011
Triptico - Pupil selector - Grouping and carpet partners - other resources: card board, task timer, pupil selector, What's the question?
Testing shows how much you are learning and should identify how much growth you can make. This links to target books - ensure tests triangulate with target books so we are teaching diagnostically. Tests should not define children. Make learning relevant to
them, the curriculum should be
inspiring and children should know
why they are learning things. C
