Tools and templates for effective peer and self assessment in the primary classroom

Peer and self assessment is a useful tool for understanding what students have learnt during a lesson. It is a skill that can be tricky to master but highly effective when done correctly. To make things easier, we have gathered together a range of resources to help you introduce and develop peer and self assessment in the primary classroom.

Question prompts

Peer assessment question cards

Questioning cards using Blooms taxonomy sentence stems. Pupils can use in pairs to question each other for lesson plenaries or independently to challenge themselves on completion of a piece of work.

Self and Peer Assessment Sentence Starter Mats

These are stuck on each table in my classroom. They help my students to construct meaningful sentences around the 'What went well&' and &';Even better if' headings.

Templates and supporting resources

Peer Assessment

TAG is a form of peer assessment that I came across when looking into assessment. From it I have created this resource for the children to complete when assessing other children's work. It comes with a scaffold and I recommend that you teach the children (or model) so that the quality of peer assessing is of a good standard.

Self Assessment and Peer Assessment

Self and Peer assessment forms to encourage children to critically consider the learning that they or their partner has achieved and give praise for these by identifying what has gone well. Children also become more aware of the presentation of their work.

Encourages children to think about giving constructive feedback to themselves or a peer and set a target to work toward next time. Children are much more engaged in remembering and responding to such targets.

Can be edited to include specific learning objectives or success criteria, hence this resource can be used for any lesson.

Helps you identify what children really know about their learning and how well they are doing.

A great edition to children's books to for book scrutiny or inspections, particularly in line with the 2014 curriculum.

Could support your marking, cutting down the time you spend on marking.

Used very effectively across KS2 and has really improved children's thinking about their own work. They no longer finish work and never look back over it again. It has really started children talking about their work. For less able children, a class discussion before hand about what learning may look like and possible targets to set has been helpful.

Peer and Self Review / Assessing Placemat

Comment and rate if you can thanks.
A resource I have laminated and use with all KS3/4 classes once every half term. A quick plenary idea that can be used any time without preparation to give a more structured student review instead of two stars and a wish.

Peer Assessment Card

An easy template for students to complete when peer assessing work. The tick boxes are taken from non-negotiable for years 5/6 in English but could easily be altered to suit your activity.
