Assessment, Computer Science, using GCSE Grades - adjusted Progression Pathways

Assessment, Computer Science, using GCSE Grades - adjusted Progression Pathways

CAS Progression Pathways (original source: https://community.computingatschool.org.uk/resources/1692 ) I use CAS Progression Pathways to asses my pupils and due to changes in area of assessing pupils progress without levels, I had to adjust this to fit our school policy. We use GCSE Grading system joined with progress within a grade. Progressing, Grade 1.....Grade 9 B - Beginning E - Emerging D - Developing S - Secure M - Mastered Example Students can achieve 1e (Grade 1 - emerging). I am using separate grades tabs to record pupils work (tab P, 1, 2, 3,..) but entering the information into the cells in these worksheets will automatically fill the Progress worksheet where you can see the overall progress for each student. If you are doing your work based on topics (Algorithms, Programming and Development,...), you also can see pupils progressing in separate areas of the curriculum. All this is automated and you have to enter the grade only once into Grades tab.

J276 Computing Full Programme Student Resource

J276 Computing Full Programme Student Resource

This 19 page document has been used with student learning in mind. It contains every aspect that the learners need to pass the two exams. It contains the title of each topic coupled with a breakdown of each. Once the student has completed the learning, they can tick each one then receive a date stamp from their teacher. I have been using this format of checking progress in many areas of my teaching within Computer Science and this document, once printed, provides an instant glance into the student's progress. Essentially, this is the only paper document that they will need for the academic year. As the rest of the research is IT based, you can instantly check their progress. OFSTED gave me outstanding feedback based on one of my Computing lessons and specifically praised me for the use of progress sheets like this. It can also be used as a scheme of work for your own delivery. You can instantly see what has been covered, when, and what needs to be taught next. Interestingly, if short-notice cover needs to be arranged, you can use the progress sheet to provide an overview of what needs to be delivered. There are two parts to this download - the PDF, ready to print, and the editable PPT file that you can use and disseminate as you wish. This 19 page document took several hours to complete and I feel that it is value for money. I would appreciate feedback on this.

NeXTCube - Computing History Poster #4

NeXTCube - Computing History Poster #4

Computing history is an important part of IT education. It helps to know one's roots and to have a greater appreciation of today's technology, and it also promotes interest in how things used to be before the days of the smartphone. This poster gives a (very) brief overview on the history of the NeXTCube, the computer that Tim Berners-Lee famously used to kickstart the World Wide Web, alongside some photos and a high-resolution illustration of the device itself. Oh, and the date's on there...wouldn't want to forget that. This package includes one poster in three different sizes: A2, A3 and A4. The images are in .jpg format and are set in print-ready CMYK colour. Colours in preview images may differ due to differences between RGB and CMYK colour spaces.
