The intention in this unit is to review the key principles behind effective marking and feedback and agree a strategy for developing marking and feedback across your school. This should naturally reflect your approach to assessment more broadly.

This unit could either be delivered to teaching staff as an update on some fundamentals, or provide input to senior and middle leader discussions on marking and feedback policy.
