2. Students said that marking matters
@Class Teaching has great student voice on feedback here. The students that I spoke to were cautious about peer assessment which Shaun Allison points out is “no substitute for teacher feedback;” as Graham Nuthall explains in The Hidden Lives of Learners, much of what students learn from each other is wrong. Also, if 45,500 grades needed to be changed last year due to inaccurate marking by qualified teachers, what makes us think that students will get it right?
And don’t forget the obvious; as one student commented plaintively, ‘I can’t read the teachers’ writing.’
