Suggested Formative Assessment Strategies

Feedback symbols for use in feedback for teachers, peers and self -reporting. The star is drawn next to improvements and good
work. The stair symbol is drawn next to one or two areas that the student needs to focus on for more improvement.
I Can Statements Students self-evaluate their handwriting by making oral statements about their abilities.
Peer Assessment Students ask their peers to underline best examples of a specific handwriting focus e.g. best speed join, most fluent sentence etc.
Report Back Students make statement about what they have learned and how they can improve
