A peer assessment task that allows pupils to assess a peer's classwork, final product or model that they have completed. It also allows peers to set a target for improvement.
Objective: Encourage pupils to create a balanced, critical view when evaluating a product. By promoting the evaluation of someone else's work, they are able to look at the product objectively without bias, particularly if the product they evaluate is not that of the person they sit next to.
Assessment: It can be used to inform AoL and formally documented by a teacher, or used more readily in session by a teacher who can then recall common targets for improvement, discussing with Q&A how these could be achieved.
Prior Knowledge: The criteria of the project, which will have been set by the classroom teacher or discussed in the form of a specification possibly.
Expectations: Pupils should begin to create a balanced, structured argument about products in general. They should use their K&U along with their experiences to identify and set appropriate targets for themselves and their peers.
Hints: These can be folded, hole punched and, with some string, tied to the product. To save on labour, the kids can do this, and it creates a simple practical element to the evaluation. Another way to do this is to print them, cut them out and glue them together. Laminate them and the pupils can then complete them with water-based markers, which can easily be wiped off. This is more time-consuming, but saves time in the lesson and saves materials in the long run
Sock Monkey Soft Toy
- Full lesson by lesson scheme of work & lesson powerpoint
key stage 3 project
The project transforms recycled socks into sock creature - Sockies! A very cost effective yet rewarding project.
The project has been thoroughly enjoyed by my year 8 pupils, each teaching rotation generating completely different and innovative ideas.
The project has no boundaries and can be easily adapted to suit. I have attached a comprehensive scheme of work with lesson by lesson objectives and lesson plans, supported by an interactive PPT
This is a handbook that I have produced includes the basic background information on break-even analysis and some exciting tasks for learner's to engage in and complete. Attached with it is a presentation that accompanies it. This should be enough material to cover 2 lessons. Ideal for GCSE students. Enjoy!
This project leads students through designing and making a usb night light with a laser cut card shade. These resources include a SOW covering each lesson, student booklet and accompanying powerpoint.
This was aimed at KS3 but is fully editable so it could be made suitable for older or younger students.
So our students didn't miss out on basic wood working skills when doing this product design rotation we included a short focussed practical task based on developing accuracy to manufacture a small boat toy.
A detailed design brief to provide students with details to complete a designer inspired clock project. Aimed at AS product design students but suitable for younger students with some adaption. Editable document.
These resources include a full lesson by lesson scheme of work, a student booklet and powerpoint resources for each lesson.

I have successfully been running this project for a number of years with KS3 students but it could be adapted for older or younger students. All files are editable so you can adapt for your studnets.
This is an ideal SOW for students to introduce them to Resistant Materials / Product Design. The product is a plywood box with a pewter cast gift. The resources include a SOW with lesson by lesson detail, student work booklet and a powerpoint to support lessons.
I have been successfully running this project for a number of years with KS3 students but it could be adapted for older or younger students. All resources are editable so they can be adapted for your students.
I devloped these resources to use to assess the basic abilities of new students in Design & Technology. The baseline assessment can be run in all areas of technology and covers general skills like rendering, measuring, designing and the use of basic tools like scissors. Our students come from a range of feeder schools and come with a variety of different skills, this allows us to compare them easily.
This sceme can be run in any of the technology areas and does not require specific materials other than the basic stationary and thin card.
Included is a powerpoint that can be used to guide students through the task, a work booklet for students to complete and a scheme of work which details each lesson. Aimed to run over 4 x 1hr lessons but all resources are editable so can easily be adapted but can also be used as is.
