Moderating using online comparative judgement tools

Comparative judgement is a modern approach to teacher assessment. Instead of marking every piece of writing individually, you can scan every pupil’s portfolio into the No More Marking comparative judgement enging. The by making a number of comparisons of pairs of items you build up a measurement scale. Instead of making absolute judgements of quality, which we as humans can’t do, you make comparison judgements of quality. The software has processed more than 2 million judgements and now The Kite TSA is working with No More Marking to bring together groups of Year 2 and Year 6 teachers to learn how to take advantage of this time-saving and quality-enhancing moderation tool. 

Welcome to our new website!

There’s always lots of information we want to share with you about what is happening across the Kite TSA and what you can read about today is just the beginning. We hope you will find this website to be an excellent resource for ideas, new connections and opportunities. We’re very happy to receive ideas and feedback – whether it’s to point out a typo or to tell us about opportunities which would benefit the Kite TSA network. If you are one of the individuals and organisations that is linked here we would be grateful if you could add a link to the Kite TSA website from yours. Here’s to exciting time for all the schools and organisations involved with The Kite TSA Cambridge.
