Target 1

‘Learning Intentions’

Summary

  • Learning Intentions should be used regularly through all departments

  • Use a variety knowledge, understanding and skill based learning intentions

  • Keep them simple (not too long/ too many)


Assessment for learning formative feedback l.jpg

Target 2

‘Assessment for Learning - Formative feedback’

  • Written Feedback

  • Oral Feedback

  • Peer and self assessment


Written feedback l.jpg

Written Feedback

‘…research shows that pupils make most progress in their learning when feedback is in the form of comments only, with no marks or grades attached’

Black and William (1998),

taken from CCEA Assessment for Learning (2007)

‘…when receiving comments paired with marks, the first thing a pupil will look at is their mark; the next thing they will look at is their neighbour’s mark. Often, pupils do not even read the comment.’

taken from CCEA Assessment for Learning (2007)


Slide13 l.jpg

Written Feedback- Current School Policy

  • Written feedback should occur at least once a term

  • Comment should be made on how to improve

  • Comments should include the students name where possible

    (No current policy on use of grades, types of grades, comments)


Slide14 l.jpg

A possible approach …

= What you are doing well

= How are you

going to improve

your work?

= What needs to be added to improve


Slide15 l.jpg

Oral Feedback ?

  • More effective?

  • Less time consuming?

  • Record it (students and teachers?)


Slide16 l.jpg

Peer and self assessment?

  • Encourages self reflection

  • Level of effort apparent

  • Can highlight how to improve

  • Demystifies marking

    (to be effective modelling is required)
