A mini peer assessment task, to be completed in pairs. The worksheet needs cutting into slips, give one slip to each student. They need to assess the work of the student next to them, by highlighting the appropriate WWW and EBI. The assessor writes their name on the sheet and hands it back to their partner. Based on this feedback, students can then set themselves a target for next lesson. Works well as a plenary task, aimed more at KS3 students or lower ability KS4.
A really good peer assessment starter/plenary task to complete with KS3 students, use the sheet to help students peer assess each other work. The idea is that students leave the sheet on the desk next to their work, all students then get up and aim to evaluate at least five students work. For each piece of work that they look at they write a positive comment (WWW) and an area for improvement (EBI) on the worksheet. You may find it useful to give students some examples of what they could write. At the end of the task students go back to their work, read the comments that others have left for them and set themselves a personal target for the lesson.
