Event description

Description

FLASH Marking is a school-developed approach in which teachers give skills-based feedback rather than grades in KS4 English. All of the skills required to access the top band of GCSE English and English Literature performance have been translated into short codes that teachers use when marking work. These codes are also used in lessons to teach the skills and by students to make peer- and self-marking faster, focused and more useful.

The Education Endowment Foundation is funding a national trial to establish if

1) The removal of grades and a focus on subject specific skills improves the quality of feedback to students and ultimately increases their metacognitive skills.

2) This approach speeds up the marking and feedback process.

A short information session explaining the approach further has been organised by Bradford Research School. If you are interested in taking part in the trial, or would like further information, the developers of the intervention will be available to answer any questions.
