I have recently spent 12 days marking papers in Leeds; trying to catch up on the mountain of papers which were unmarked by the final date.
Some of these papers were re-marks papers returned by failed markers The small red- was not used! IMO this is a direct result of Team Leaders no longer checking a sample of work from their team of markers. These were time consuming, especially if the marker was not on broadband, or their PC was old.
A mountain of IT problems were a result!The Key Stage 2 English tests and mark schemes were produced by the Key Stage 2 English team at the National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER) on behalf of STA. moderation will look at the evidence from the ordinary marked work produced across year 6.
