I have been using the traffic light to help my students self-assess but I love the idea of giving an opportunity to the students to reach out to their peers for understanding the concept.

The students are helping each other improve.Self assessments can help a student acknowledge what is wrong and how they can correct it. Peers helping one another also helps boost understanding throughout the lesson.

    Summary

    A demonstration of effective examples of assessment for learning, which are of relevance to learning at any key stage.
    RE pupils at the President Kennedy School in Coventry are asked to write down their impressions of a book and then rate their work using a traffic light system.
    The results are then used to inform the rest of the lesson so the teacher can target help for the pupils who indicated red or amber.
    In this lesson the help was provided by other pupils by using structured collaboration.
    Later, Philippa Cordingley, director of the Centre for the Use of Research and Evidence in Education explains the use of this strategy supported by the research in this video .
