Another amazing resource which can be used straight away in the classroom. The questions are perfectly written to the new specification. A brilliant way to check on the learning of the students. Everything is brilliant, could not fault it. Easy to read and follow and having the answers separately is also a bonus.

Perfect!! Just what is needed. This is a brilliant resource - your best one yet. Perfectly written for the new DT GCSE... All the questions are well written especially the maths questions. I like the way you have done two styles of question booklets (write on and non-write on) to reduce copying cost... I have tried some of the questions with my students to see what they think and they are very student friendly and will hopefully improve their performance in the exam.
Easy to read and understand by asking questions to stretch the student, re-capping knowledge and prepping them for their GCSE... I like that it reads student friendly... It covers all aspects related to the topic, giving depth and understanding... It provides the student with realistic material knowledge.

Can be used as revision after the topic has been taught or as progression tracking before and after teaching... It will help reinforce the teaching, allowing the teacher to keep regular assessment tracking of all topics. This will allow clear student progression... It's a great resource for new members of staff to the profession or non specialists, as it's so easy to follow.

I would find this a very useful resource to use in my own teaching. I see it as being particularly useful at the end of a whole unit or subtopic for monitoring progress as well as good preparation for the final exam. The range of questions give comprehensive coverage of the specification in a very clear and accessible form that provide a high degree of challenge and are matched with a similarly clear and helpful mark scheme.
The way in which it is broken down into manageable chunks for each topic makes it suitable for quick monitoring of knowledge/progress by either student or teacher. A good range of questions and answers that are appropriate for the specification with the flexibility of a format that allows them to be used in a number of ways by the Teacher.
Great for consolidation at the end of a project or to test knowledge at specific stages of learning... I really like the questions that involve a specific design situation... They add realism and opportunity to apply learning.

Very good... wide ranging and will show the pupil exactly how in depth they need to be to cover all the content of this subject. It is pitched to GCSE pupils at the correct level, allowing lower ability pupils to answer questions and push higher ability pupils. These tests could be a good indicator of pupil progress which is now paramount and the main focus of assessment.

Good bank of questions and answers that are appropriate for the specification and produced in a format that is flexible enough for these questions to be used in a number of ways, e.g. as homework, end-of-topic test, mock exam, or forming part of lessons as starters / plenary questions... It matches both the specification sequence and the style of specimen paper. Good mixture of multiple-choice and longer questions with the marks clearly identified... The way in which it is broken down into manageable chunks for each topic makes it suitable for quick monitoring of knowledge/progress.
