Comparative judgement offers a different way of assessing writing which reduces reliance on prose descriptors. Markers look at a pair of essays and to judge which one is better. The judgement they make is a holistic one about the overall quality of the writing.
Once all the judgements have been made, teachers identify particular strengths, weaknesses and learning needs and use these to inform future teaching.
Teachers are also able to complete these judgements relatively rapidly, leading to reductions in workload too.
This course offers School Leaders, Assessment Leads & English Subject Leaders an opportunity to:
- Find out more about Comparative Judgement and the assessment principles which underpin it
- Participate in a ‘live’ judging session to see how Comparative Judgement works in practice
