Evaluate student progress and save on marking time by incorporating peer assessment into your lessons 

Peer assessment is an effective tool allowing students not only to demonstrate their own progress but also to develop a better understanding of the criteria they need to adhere to in order to succeed. Evaluating their peers can be a powerful learning tool for pupils and by getting students to review one anothers work you may even find yourself saving time on your marking!

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.
