The idea is known as assessment for learning, and the aim is for teachers to move away from traditional marking te-chniques such as awarding pupils 7/10 or B+.

Instead they are urged to adopt marking methods which enable students to reflect on their own work and consider ways in which improvements can be made.

The scheme was introduced to Jersey three years ago and is now in place in all primary and secondary schools, having been implemented in a third of the Island’s schools each year.

Representatives from King’s College, London, and Sussex University were in the Island this week, revealing the findings of a study they conducted last term on the way AFL had been implemented and its impact on the Island.
