Marking and assessment
The EEF review of marking: what do we know? What should we be asking ourselves?
The EEF toolkit is regularly updated and is very useful but please do read the summary sheets; context matters and there will always have been a range of responses within any systematic review, it is important you look at all the information to be able to make informed decisions. The Institute for Effective Education is another excellent website to link practitioners with research. Finally the EPPI centre has some excellent resources but the full reports are very long and somewhat less practitioner facing than the two listed above.
Promising projects allows you to examine interventions that evidence currently suggests should have a positive impact on pupil outcomes. This can provide powerful rationales for your pupil premium spending and underpin your reviews and self assessments.
The Research Schools Network is a collaboration between the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) and the Institute for Effective Education (IEE). Their website is an excellent source of further help and information in the region and beyond. Huntington School is the RS in the Yorkshire and Humber region.
