Principles of marking and feedback
Guidelines to marking and feedback
The date and learning objective should be clearly indicated on the piece of work.
Ticks are normal where work is correct, and crosses or a dot where errors have been made.
Children should be given opportunities to mark or give feedback on their own and others work.
The Learning objective is highlighted yellow to indicate the child has met the learning objective. Dots underneath the learning objective show that the child has a level of understanding.
Pink is used to indicate errors the child has made. If possible allow the child opportunity to correct the errors indicated.
Stamps may be used; to give an indication of the support given with a piece of work; praise and indicate if verbal feedback has been given.
Areas of work highlighted yellow indicate that the correct features of the type of writing based on the learning objective have been used.
Areas of work highlighted pink are the next steps.
