Assessment policy an extract l.jpg

Assessment Policy – an extract

  • Students’ work should be marked at least every THREE weeks in all Years. This may be a quick check that work is complete and up to date; where tasks have been set that will indicate how well the student has learnt a topic, the marking will need to be more thorough.

  • Summary notes are most useful for overall assessment of the strengths of the answer and advice for future improvement in the form of clear targets.
