TTV: Key Stage 4 History – Assessment for Learning
A visit to Holgate School near Nottingham where Mike Endy's Year 10 history class have recently finished a local history unit on the impact of coal mining in the 19th and 20th century.
During the 12-week unit, which is part of the OCR GCSE History pilot, pupils completed three assessment tasks. Watch as Mike hands their results back and devotes the lesson to Assessment for Learning (AfL).
Mike explains to the class how the three tasks were assessed holistically – a new concept to these pupils – and asks them to consider how to improve their work through peer and individual assessment. Meanwhile, Mike reflects on how the process worked for him too.
This programme is particularly relevant to audiences with limited experience of AfL who are seeking to improve their understanding of how peer assessment can help pupils improve in their exams.
