Peer Marking

Peer Marking

During the recent #tweetmeet @talkingdonkeyRE spoke about getting his A Level students to peer mark their essays.  He had created a grid for them that explained the marking criteria, breaking it down into seperate grids and statements.  I thought this was ingenious and have now done it for our GCSE RS cohort to enable them to peer-mark effectively.

The example I have given is based around the WJEC Spec B Religious Studies paper.  I’ve included the handout and the working (with the examiners marking grids) to show how I have reached the conclusions I have.  Files are in PDF format and available here:

May I stress that I am not a WJEC examiner, nor have any meaningful marking experiences other than the years of practice I have done with my classes.

Feel free to download and adapt, and send any thoughts you have to me, as well as to follow me on Twitter for my next blog on showing rapid and sustained progress using learning logs.
