Key stage 3 internal assessments for years 7 and 8 this week. So each assessment that involves extended writing includes a levelled mark scheme which is. Shared with classes as part of the Pre-assessment revision lesson.
Over the last today’s revision classes with year 7 sets have included work with the mark scheme. Then the two key aspects – a labelled diagram and written piece are explored further using hexagons of the skills and expectations against the target levels for the particular teaching group.
The best aspect of the exercise has been the development of key terms. Use of a mark scheme to identify skill needs and a series of questions from a range of pupils – in conclusion I need to develop the use of SOLO further.
