Peer to Peer Assessment



An imaginative peer assessment lesson is used with Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 maths students, showcasing an easy-to-use idea for lesson planning.

Teacher Rich Walters presents an easy lesson idea to facilitate peer-to-peer assessment, using a pack of post-it notes and three categories of questions.

The students at Merchants Academy, Bristol, tackle a range of questions, classified as standard, challenge and super-challenge, then check their answers against their peers'.

They pick a question and then write their answers on the back of the post-it note, along with their name.

The dialogue that this creates is highly effective, enables students to learn from each other and helps them to understand what their attainment levels mean.
