I created this to use with year 9. I want them to identify ways of creating atmosphere. Here, I’ve used the weather.

But I also want them to ‘peer assess’ and to suggest ways to change and improve.

Something I’ve created:

I have been making and using these for the last few years, for all KS3 assessments. Simply use APP levels and language, linked to the standards in the NC and make it all a little more pupil friendly. Then, staff highlight the area that best-fits the individual student’s work.

Your gaps = pupil targets (and things to address in reflection and your teaching).
