Hi folks

I just wondered what sort of targets you find yourselves writing in students books, and on their assessments regularly? Does anyone have a 'target bank' that they can refer to? I'm interested in both KS3 and 4... 5 is so individual (and so much EASIER to mark I find!).

I'm asking because i've been marking books and assessments recently and realised that I'm forever asking students to "add more detail to their answers" to "refer to evidence to back up their answers" to "answer in full sentences" repeatedly!

I'd love to hear any words on wisdom on the subject of marking and specifically, targets!

We have a number of module -specific 'learning ladders' at KS3 (explains briefly what each level requires via a 'can do' statement)

Occasionally we use the ladder itself to write the target on or use some form of words on the assessment the indicated the exact area they needed to improve to have attained the next level.

We sat down and thought what we wanted kids to be able to do by the end of each year then we write targets loosely based around these. Generally however I think personal comments are always better than a comment bank, even if they end up being a bit shorter

I have a lot of non-specialists teaching history this year, and these will be very useful, thanks.

You're scared of mice and spiders, but oh-so-much greater is your fear that one day the two species will cross-breed to form an all-powerful race of mice-spiders, who will immobilize human beings in giant webs in order to steal cheese.
