PEEAL Marking Sticker

These editable templates help you to mark quickly and efficiently. Simply highlight the skills: red for 'not yet'; yellow for 'mastered'. You could even traffic light your marking with these stickers! This resource saves time and reduces 'comment' marking, whilst still allowing pupils to see what they have done well and also what their target is.
