A requirement of the unit was to engage in a formative assessment activity were I was to mark and provide written feedback to two peers. This activity was very beneficial as this was my first experience in marking peer work using an assessment rubric. As a teacher marking is something that will be a requirement on a regular basis and in large amounts.
This activity provided the opportunity for me to think about what feedback could benefit the peer. It enabled me to consider what effective marking is and the benefits constructive feedback can have on a students learning. If feedback is provided focusing on all aspects; both positive and negative it can enable the student to reflect and understand areas requiring improvement.Marking of Peer 1 – Rima Soueid link – Rima Soueid Blog_Blog Rubric Peer Marking done by Courtney Anderson Marking of Peer 2 – Donna Bumback link – Donna Bumbak Blog_Blog Rubric Peer Marking done by Courtney Anderson
