Success criteria, or rubrics, allow students to better understand what they need to do in order to achieve their personal best. Once their work has been assessed they can see where they need to improve, with a clear idea of the particular areas they need to work on in the future.
Firefly’s ongoing product design is inspired by teachers, ensuring that its capabilities and workflows are intuitive and support the modern learning experience. As part of this commitment, we are working on developing the facility for schools to create a central bank of success criteria which a school would be able to use as part of their marking and assessment process.
As well as re-using their own success criteria, teachers would be able to select from a library of success criteria created centrally within the school. Success criteria set at the departmental or school level can save time for teachers and further increase the consistency of marking across all subjects. This improved consistency also means that the feedback teachers give to students can be used to augment a school’s reporting system without adding to a teacher’s workload.
