Giving Useful Feedback with a Teacher Stamp:
The Benefits of AFL (Assessment for Learning) in the Primary Classroom
If you’re a teacher, you’re probably well aware of the importance of assessment for learning (AFL). Rather than simply providing a meaningless mark out of ten, or an end grade without any additional comment or feedback, assessment for learning focuses firmly on making marking meaningful.
What are the Key Benefits of AFL in the Primary School?
AFL is wonderful in theory, but as every teacher knows, when put into practice, it can be enormously time-consuming. This ‘ Teacher Feedback' teaching stamp makes the process of productive assessment far easier in the classroom. It features 4 phrases:
It's really useful in the classroom, because not only does it drastically cut down time spent marking, but it frees up more time for having those all-important productive conversations with pupils. It encourages children to ask themselves really key questions about their work; reflecting and then coming up with solutions as to how they can improve.
When used regularly, pupils become familiar with the system of assessment, and will understand that when they see one of the teacher stamps in their books, they need to reflect pro-actively on their work.
