After writing their own answers, Then students were given the model answer scoring all 6 marks, and reflected individually on what was good about it. They brought their ideas together into table groups, identified a top 3 good features, and we wrote these on the board. Duplicate ideas were marked and we used this to agree a top 5 success criteria for 6 mark questions.
