The finished answer can then be either self-assessed or
peer-assessed using the markscheme on the back of the travelcard.

used, underline where the marking points have been met and set improvement
targets. Follow up with DIRT.
Can be adapted to suit any subject.
Swap the markscheme for a writing frame on the back of the
