No More Marking
Moderating using online comparative judgement tools
27/02/2017

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.
