A simple grid to provide feedback to students on a piece of work or work from several lessons. I use two highlighters - one for successes and another for next steps.
How to use
Change the topic title.
Work out the success criteria for the work and fill in the successes section.
Use the success criteria to create next steps criteria.
Provide students with the marking and feedback grid as success criteria for the task or series of lessons.
As students work have discussions with them on what they've achieved so far and what they could do to improve. At this stage I tend to highlight the successes and put an asterisk in the box of successes that they should try and do next.
Mark the remainder of the work, highlighting successes in one colour and the 'next steps' in another.
DIRT - give students an opportunity to complete the 'next steps' you've highlighted.
I tend not to give out the merits or grade until DIRT has been undertaken.
Students can use the marking and feedback grid to self and peer assess as well.
