Responsibilities Role of Student A fundamental principle that underpins formative assessment is student involvement. If students are not involved in the assessment process, formative assessment is not practiced or implemented to its full effectiveness. Students need to be involved both as assessors of their own learning and as resources to other students. They should: ■■Ensure that they have clearly understood the task / activity set, recorded it in their journal and responded fully – giving sufficient time (at least 45 minutes at KS3 and one hour at KS4 per subject) to ensure a high quality response. ■■To meet with the class teacher for support in advance of the deadline should there be any difficulty with the tasks set. ■■To catch up on all work set through absence. ■■Act on the advice given to them through the teacher comments – these may be signposted using EBI (Even Better If…) – by making a response to those areas highlighted and thereby engaging in a positive and ongoing learning dialogue with the teacher. Time may be given for this at the start of a lesson. ■■Feedback constructively and honestly to staff when giving their ‘perceptions of the work’. ■■Submit work on time, adequately attending to interim draft and final deadlines without exception. ■■Follow deadlines for large assignments to ensure adequate progress and so maximise potential.

Targets Write your target level/grade in the box for each subject

Parents can assist by: ■■Providing a quiet place to work with a table and chair. ■■Ensure that there is a golden hour when homestudy is completed without the distractions of phones, TV etc. ■■Checking the time spent on individual tasks. ■■Ensure that outside activities / clubs, whilst important, do not hamper a child’s quality of work and put the child under undue pressure. ■■Checking the presentation and where possible the content of all homestudy. ■■Signing the journal once a week and liaising with the school if there are any issues regarding homestudy via the Head of Year or class teacher.
