KS4 History – Assessment for Learning

Mike Endy assesses a Year 10 history project with his pupils At Holgate School outside Nottingham, Mike Endy’s Year 10 history class has recently finished a local history unit on the impact of coal mining in the 19th and 20th centuries, part of the new OCR GCSE History Pilot. During the 12-week unit pupils completed three Assessment Tasks and today Mike hands them back and devotes the lesson to assessment for learning. He explains how these three tasks are assessed holistically, a new concept these pupils, and gets them to consider their own work and see how to improve it through peer and individual assessment, while Mike reflects on the process for him.
