Using Peer Assessment in MFL

(0)
Peer assessment is a GREAT way to save timing marking and encourage students to think carefully about their work. This also gives students time to reflect on their mistakes and improve them. I have attached a few examples of peer assessment forms that I have used in my French/Spanish lessons. The forms can be adapted easily based on the topic you are teaching. I have used these forms these peer assessment forms in year 7 all the way up to year 11! Super easy to use for students and easy for teachers to instantly see what students have included/not included in their work and work on targets.
