Peer Assessment, final product or model

Peer Assessment, final product or model

Description: This is a simple peer assessment task that allows KS3 pupils to assess a peer's final product or model that they have produced. It prompts them to identify something that has been done well, whilst also highlighting an area to 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 evalaute 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 kinaesthetic 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

Teacher Excel Markbook

Teacher Excel Markbook

This excel spreadsheet can be used to record student's grades. Using a 1-10 system you can record their marks and it will automatically average the grade. If you enter J, K or L in capitals (which is converted into a smiley face) in the effort column it will also average their effort grade. This provides formative feedback and allows progress to be monitored. This is a concept and could easily be adapted for specific use, i.e. Assessment without levels, BTEC etc.

Example comments for when you mark science work

Example comments for when you mark science work

Lots of people struggle to write useful, formative comments on students work. These statements could be edited very slightly and printed and stuck to student work, saving you the hassle of writing out the same comments over and over again. These really do save time when it comes to marking science work.

Revision Cards

Revision Cards

These personalised revision cards are an ideal alternative to plain index cards.Students can use the front cover to reflect about what they want to learn. They then use the revision cards to write their notes and can even use the Content Page to index the cards so they can locate topics quickly.At the back there is a Keyword glossary page for students to write definitions of keywords relating to the topic. As you can see from the picture I have had mine spiral bound so students can quickly flick between revision notes. The generic cards can be used for most subjects and allow the student to write their name, target and topic the cards are about. Really useful to focus revision .

A Revision activity designed to keep students focused on an active approach to their revision. The powerpoint leads pupils through this approach and I have included an example from my own subject in History.

World Book Day Quiz

World Book Day Quiz

Another one of my 'interactive' Quizzes - this is #3!The pattern is the same as my other ones - so TV Intros, Who Am I?, Films, Dingbats etc. However, all of these have a focus on World Book Day - so all the questions are linked to books. You could, obviously, do this at other times though!It's aimed to be accessible across the Key Stages - I've done it with 7s (with a number of clues!) right up to my Upper 6th English. There are rounds my younger class did much better at!!! It should happily take up a lesson or a tutor period - the answers are included at the back.You can pick up my other two quizzes - in the same format - here:End of Term Quiz #1End of Term Quiz #2
