Resources: A coloured pen What to do: When students are completing whatever task you have asked them to do, simply go round to their exercise book/worksheet/task and place a dot next to a mistake. Just one simple dot next to the mistakes. The aim is for the students to figure out what their mistake is and for the whole marking process to be speeded up for teachers. Variations: Get students peer assessing using the dot marking method too. RAG rating dot marking- red, amber, green dots. Red- mistake, amber- could be better, green- spot on?
