Planning for Assessment
The assessment of pupils’ UICT skills within the scheme is based on teacher assessment. These skills should be developed as pupils progress through KS3 and you should base evidence of pupils’ UICT competence on work undertaken in Using ICT across the Areas of Learning. Pupils therefore are required to demonstrate their level of UICT competence by carrying out tasks set in a variety of subject contexts.
Therefore when planning for assessment you should ensure that:
- pupils’ skills are applied and assessed in cross-curricular contexts;
- opportunities are provided for pupils to experience the breadth of ICT (coverage of the 5 'E's); and
- at least five of the Desirable Features are used in your submitted assessment tasks.
Online registration for the scheme will close on 20th September 2010.
