This assessment guide could be used for either self- or peer-assessment purposes, or a combination of both.
Students should be familiar with how to self- and/or peer-assess, and with what they are looking for, before using this guide.
Ideally, the assessment would be followed-up with a conference, either with the peer-assessor or the teacher.
The 'next time' section of the assessment guide is for students to set their next goals. This section could be glued into the student's work book as a record.
When explaining to students how to complete the assessment task, teachers could include the following points:
Write your first draft.
Use the editing guide to help you make any changes which would improve the quality of your work.
Make the changes to your writing.
Use the guide again to assess and reflect on the editing and the quality of your work.
