Sharing Practice Peer Observation Programme 2011

Planning for Assessment


Peer assessment is a good method for sharing assessment criteria with learners, examples in PE demonstrate how level descriptors, PLTS and GCSE grade descriptions can be used to guide peer and self assessment, examples in PE of learners modelling specific skills, and meeting certain criteria, examples of peer assessment / marking in Yr13 Drama lesson where students were preparing for their written exam

Q&A sessions help assess pupil progress in an individual lesson, as well as across a sequence of lessons

Exploring learner perceptions of certain grades or grade criteria, and using exemplar work to build a picture of accurate grade descriptors, Sharing assessment criteria with learners is essential in identifying the difference between A and A*
