Links to blogs on marking

About six weeks ago I started work on a blog for the October Blogsync “Marking with Impact”, I thought it would be a quick piece, maybe a few hours work. My focus was on marking for Early Years, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. However, once I got started I soon realised what a complex web of different strategies, purposes, and outcomes the subject is. As a consequence my blog (or blogs) are going to be a horribly late entry.

Nevertheless, one advantage in being late is the opportunity it gives to read all the other blogs that have been published recently on the subject. They make up a fascinating and extremely useful list. Please let me know if I’ve missed any out.
