Identify mistakes: Dot marking/being an examiner

To aid feedback, use teacher guidance to identify strengths and areas for improvement.

1. Dot marking: Use RAG dots to help pupils to identify their own strengths and areas for development.

  • Red– incorrect facts, needs more description and explanation

The teacher uses yellow dots, combined with Whole Class Feedback, to help pupils identify their own areas for development. The orange text here shows the targets which pupils have been able to write.
