An excellent broad variety of tasks that will appeal to a spectrum of ability ranges

The variety of challenge was good for mixed ability groups. I liked the mixed skills covered including literacy, numeracy.

Helps with content recall and concept development. Content recall has become far more important in recent years and this ensures students are regularly assessed on key aspects of the topic matter.

Specification reference mapping is useful. Good use of Higher Tier differentiation.
