AQA A-Level 8 mark student self assessment

AQA A-Level 8 mark student self assessment

I am really keen to get my students to sit 8 mark exam questions but feel like I do too much to then tell them what they are doing wrong rather than they find out for themselves. So I am now using this! :-)I get the students to sit the exam question / then either peer or self assess using the mark scheme and then complete this sheet. They then tell me what they need to do to improve - AO1/AO2/AO3 etc.

Key Stage 3 Assessment Tool

Key Stage 3 Assessment Tool

I created this tool in order to create appropriate class lists at Key stage 3. I was finding that the groups that were generated at random in year 7 were inappropriate and were therefore having a negative impact on students' experience within PE. This complete set of assessment lessons and tracker allows the children to be informally assessed in a range of fitness components/skill sets (which in itself they love). They receive a score of 1 (outstanding) and 6 (poor) for each discipline and then an average score when they have been assessed at everything. This average scores can then be filtered and used to group children appropriately in order to provide appropriate stretch & challenge without unrealistic differentiation.
