A Level AQA Non-Exam Assessment (NEA) Companion

Comprehensive, well-structured guidance helps teachers and students get to grips with the requirements of the A Level AQA NEA: Practical Project.

Written by a vastly experienced Computer Science teacher, this companion is especially valuable to less experienced teachers as well as those who’ve not attended the AQA training sessions.

  • Includes separate chapters for each stage of the marking criteria:
    • Analysis
    • Documented Design
    • Technical Solution
    • Testing
    • Evaluation
  • Tips, diagrams and examples from a number of original scenarios
  • Advice on choosing the right project and preparing work for submission
An excellent resource for teachers and students. I love how the resource breaks down each aspect of the NEA... There is clear guidance for the whole process, from choosing a project, to writing it up and presenting your algorithms, databases, etc. all the way through to testing and evaluation.

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (7758)

I am really impressed with this NEA structure. It has a clear outline that follows the synoptic and assessment structure outlined by AQA... Clear sections and sub-sections support NEA brief very well... Example outline matches what AQA expect to see on the project plan. Project proposal form and alternative a great way to engage learner to think of possible solutions... Clear diagrams in design section which support a range of analysis tools... Checklists at the end of each section allows learners to see what is missing and needs to be applied - very good as it supports the assessment criteria too" - L Price, Head of Department and independent reviewer
