Dear teachers,

Have you heard about Comparative Judgement? 

It is so quick to use and does away with long-winded moderation. I was blown away by this simple idea for summative assessment.

Comparative judgement for Year 2 writing

Comparative judgement is a quicker and more accurate way of assessing writing. No More Marking has recently carried out a big comparative judgement assessment of Year 2 writing involving over 500 primaries and 24,000 Year 2 pupils. Click here to read the best pieces of writing and find out more. Year 6 examples are also available here.

Watch this video by No More Marking to see comparative judgement in action.

Hope this helps,
Best wishes

Are you a SEN teacher?

  We're holding a one-day Read Write Inc. Phonics training for staff from special schools, or SEN units in mainstream schools, working with students with moderate to severe learning difficulties.

The trainer, Rebecca Loza, says: 

"We know how to teach the hardest to reach children to read. Seeing a student who has previously not been able to crack the code, read simple decodable books is moving and powerful. Once students can read accurately, we help develop greater fluency and teach comprehension."

Join us on Friday 14 June in our London office.
