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.

Bloom's Taxonomy Question Cards

Bloom's Taxonomy Question Cards

Multi-purpose questions, differentiated as if by Bloom himself!Included in this pack are questions for each level of Bloom’s Taxonomy that can be used in many ways in the classroom.There are 49 questions altogether and they are colour-coordinated. Generally, the level of challenge increases from red/knowledge questions (simplest) through the rainbow colours to purple/evaluation ones (most challenging). The questions have been made so that they can be cut out and used however you like, and they're written so that they can be applied to any lesson in any subject. Similarly, they can be adapted to fit specific lessons or topics.Suggested uses for the cards:• As a challenge activity for children who finish their work early.• As part of a whole-class plenary.• As a starter to recap previous learning.• To assess for learning at the end of a unit.• As a game (e.g. who can draw the best picture to show their learning?)• As ‘exit cards’ where students have to answer a question before they can ‘exit’ the lesson.• Children can choose their own cards (once they know the difference in level of ease/challenge), or the teacher can direct different groups of children to particular colours.• The longer ‘cards’ with the names and brief descriptions of each level of the taxonomy, e.g. ‘Knowledge (recalling facts)’, can be used to inform the children which level each type of question corresponds to and/or for a display.

Ros Wilson Big Write Class Assessment Grid

Ros Wilson Big Write Class Assessment Grid

An Excel grid that uses the Ros Wilson Big Writing Assessment standards (updated for 2016 expectations) to assess pupil performance against the new Age Related Expectation criteria. Instructions for use are on the notes page and I hope they are completely self explanatory. If not I have failed, not for the first time! Hope they save people a bit of time.Just to answer a couple of questions. I have not done a similar spreadsheet for Big Read. The E, D and S grades do mean Emerging, Developing and Secure. I believe the rough %age for E is up to 33% and D up to 66%. There are some (grey) criteria that are non-negotiable standards and these do not count towards the %age grading.

End of Term Quiz #2

End of Term Quiz #2

After the popularity of my first one, I thought I'd share my latest oneAn interactive, End of Term Quiz.This has a variety of rounds - TV Intros, Children's Literature, Film, Science, Dingbats etc. There's nothing really time-sensitive here: although there is a slight Christmas flavour to the movie round.It's aimed to be accessible across the Key Stages - I've done it with 7s (with a few clues) up to 13s. It should happily take up a lesson - the answers are included at the back.
