What happened when the teachers stopped marking?


How can we reduce teacher workload but maintain academic standards? A DfE funded trial conducted by the Cheshire Vale TSA in conjunction with Evidence Based Education ran across three secondary schools. The trial evaluated the impact of English teachers not providing written feedback to students. Subsequent to this,Tarporley High School has changed its assessment policy to one where teachers in all subjects have changed their practice so that feedback forms part of all lessons but no written feedback is given to students. Workload has reduced, and practice and outcomes have improved.

Across two days, over 250 sessions will take place at the Festival. A full timetable of sessions will be available from late May 2019. Until this point we will only be announcing the day(s) sessions will be taking place.
