A good awareness of your mark scheme!
What to do:
Instead of giving students a final grade and mark for their piece of work/assessment/mock exam and so on, try giving them the number of marks they are off the next grade instead.
Do not put any mention of their current grade. (Although, obviously, they can figure out their current grade by working out how many marks they are off their next grade!)
The idea is to promote aspirational leaps of students believing the next grade/step is achievable and indeed doable!
How many marks you need for a C- 3
How many marks you need for a B- 8
How many marks you need for an A- 13
How many marks you need for an A*- 18
When giving students feedback on edited/corrected work, (DIRT time tasks), only record how many marks they have improved their work by.
