Traffic Light Assessment

Age Range: 5 - 11
By: A Visitor

I am encouraging my year 4 class to self assess and think more carefully about their learning.

In Maths we use a traffic lights system. At the end of each lesson the children draw a circle and write:

  • G (green light) - understand this very well,
  • O (amber light) - need a bit of support but understand the basics or...
  • R (red light) - help I don't understand.

When I mark the books and feedback to the children or parents it is really useful to know how they feel about the topic and helps me target children more effectively in class. If the letters G, O, R are written rather than coloured it means the children s assessment is still visible if the work is photocopied.
