These "Proven to Work" videos offer such simple, yet very effective techniques. Structuring self-assessment/peer advisory in this way takes all the fuss out. Lovely video of children who've learned to be kind while being direct with one another.

This was a very good approach in gauging students learning immediately. It provided students with the opportunity to share and support each other. Traffic Light is an ideal name for this strategy. Lorraine Massey

This could be a safe and comfortable way to students to evaluate their work and receive help via peer-tutoring, rather than only relying on teacher-driven assessment. Also, the act of the peer tutoring solidifies the knowledge for the student doing the teaching.

The above strategy is unique and practical for all the learning stages to evaluate their own learning

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 .
