What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4221)
""An enabling resource for students, helping the students to think about the requirements of the controlled assessment task. Marks are very clearly signposted, highlighting in student terms Bad Marks and Bad Marks. Aimed at the requirements of the current controlled assessments, this resource will prove useful as the tasks change...clearly demonstrates to students, in student terms, the sort of things students need to be thinking about." P Nolan, ICT teacher & Independent Reviewer
"Very detailed and comprehensive. It pretty much included every thing needed to get through the unit 2 controlled assessment...I liked the detail of the resource, it inlcuded lots of examples of what to do and what not to do...I feel it would definatley help pupils understand unit 2 better and would be a great parctise exercise that they could work through at their own pace before the'real thing'. It matches the spec very well and will help pupils with the real controlled assessment" J Hawkins, Head of ICT & Independent Reviewer
"A useful resource that seemed to cover the WJEC GCSE ICT Unit 2 Controlled Assessment accurately and completely...The resource matches the specification well as it contains tasks and examples on all the topics in the specification. In most cases the depth covered seems about right for the GCSE student." P Chapman, Head of ICT & Independent Reviewer
"A good companion to the GCSE that tackles the specification well...It is hard to do a coursework companion that is generic as the topics change year after year but this does it well...I like the way the resource is written, very pupil friendly. It puts the onus on them to work independently...Helps pupils to check their own work and make sure they have completed the tasks to the full. It also tackles common misconceptions which is good." V Price, Head of ICT & Independent Reviewer
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4441)
"A comprehensive resource covering all the main skills required for Unit 4...The writer of this resouce had clearly read the teacher guidance from the WJEC and then created their own example website. This guide should enable students to reach the higher marks...Very clear layout and progreses through the setting up of the multimedia website in a logical manner. Very easy to follow." M Williams, Examiner & Independent Reviewer
"A very good resource. I liked the layout and clear explanations of required skills and evidence...The tasks set and examples given enable the pupils to learn the skill prior to attempting the task and also lead them to producing the correct and required evidence...The images used and annotation on examples would also really help pupils with their own evidence and annotation." L Williams, ICT Teacher & Independent Reviewer
"A great guide for students taking this course It matches [the specification] very well... outlines pretty much everything needed for the controlled assessment" J Hawkins, Head of ICT & Independent Reviewer
