Hearing a pupil read HMI asked a group of Year 9 pupils to choose and read their best piece of work from their books. He then asked them to find a marking comment on their work which had been helpful, and they had to explain to the HMI, how it had helped them to improve. What evidence can this supply?
Hearing a pupil read Evidence about: Achievement Fluency in reading Competence in writing Oracy Pupils understanding of pride in work (SMSC) Level of challenge in the work Quality of marking Helpfulness of marking Pupils’ understanding of their own progress and achievement Curriculum (breadth, balance, pupils’ interests)
