  1. I found it particulary interesting to hear about your approach to moderation of reading. The issues which you raised will help staff when they are engaging in similar work.
    I agree that setting agreed success criteria at the start matching clearly to the learning intention is key, particularly when you are gathering evidence from a range of different learning styles. Also the need for a range of evidence when commenting on security of learning.
    I will be encouraging staff to look at your experience and feel that it will help us in our moderation work.
    Thank you for sharing your work.
