Updated: Peer Assessment. Classwork, exercise book, final product or model

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

AQA D&T AO1-AO5 Assessment sheet (for old Spec until 2017)

AQA D&T AO1-AO5 Assessment sheet (for old Spec until 2017)

Sheets with assessment criteria that can be given to pupils as you start each section with them. Using highlighter pens they/you can assess their progress and they can visually see their current mark. Each sheet has the AQA grading criteria, also a check list for relevant contents, and space for planning.I find that giving the pupils one sheet at a time helps them to focus on the specific area they are working on and doesn't overload them with too much at one time.
