No More Marking Webinar with Jeanette Breen

Event concluded

Comparative judgement is a process where judges compare two responses and decide which is better. Research has shown the process to be as reliable as double marking, but much quicker. In this webinar Jeanette Breen will provide an introduction to No More Marking and the use of comparative judgements to reduce teachers’ marking load. This includes a demonstration involving children’s writing. Jeanette will also be discussing the next No More Marking Australian project launching in February 2024 and answering questions about comparative judgement.

 

Using Elastik to Create Longer Cadence Reviews Webinar

Event concluded

Spacing grade-level retrieval practice and application helps students embed key ideas and can improve transfer to novel contexts. Longer Cadence Reviews are the perfect vehicle for this type of practice but creating such reviews can take time. Come along to learn how to utilise Elastik and your student data to make the most of your reviews.

“It has given me time to reflect on my own practice. As teachers it's easy to get stuck in the same routines because it's what you know best. This course has me thinking not just about good practice, but great practice.”

– Karen Bahmann, Teacher, St Clare’s College
