Re-cycled marking...

Now, whenever a new pupil makes a mistake which a teacher has previously marked, the system can respond with the teacher's comment.

For example, consider this question...

`A line with gradient -3.2 passes through the point (-17.1, -2.9) `

What is the equation of the line ?

...the pupil has mixed up substituting in

`17.1 = -3.2 * -2.9 + c`

But someone else has made this mistake before so Number.school intervenes with the teacher's comment as the pupil makes this mistake...

Effective marking gives pupils insight into their errors, distinguishes between slips and misunderstandings, and makes pupils notice and learn from the feedback.

Who else has written the same comment more than once when marking ?

The more mistakes and responses Number.school learns, the stronger it makes your marking.
