This is a booklet for young writers. The aim is to encourage them to assess each other's story writing by asking them 16 simple questions. Each question has a YES/NO structure, and all the reader has to do is circle the relevant answer. Each YES response is followed by an uplifting, positive comment; each NO, by a brief writing target. Once the reader has assessed the writing, the writer then uses the NO comments to create a set of 5 writing targets, and then reflects on ways to reach those targets.
An simple assessment for learning/ formative assessment tool for students aged 9 to 12.
