Benefits of marking for Heads of Department

  • Having examiners in your team has an impact on the quality of teaching, learning and assessment across your department and improves the progress pupils make in the subject
  • You have an expert on the specification in your team
  • You have an expert on the mark scheme with experience of its practical application on your team
  • Sharing of this expertise through meetings and CPD sessions will disseminate best practice through your department
  • It will enable the development of internal moderation processes to be more robust and so data arising from tests/mocks etc. will be more reliable
