Religious Studies (RE) GCSE Tracking Assessment/Trial Examinations

Religious Studies (RE) GCSE Tracking Assessment/Trial Examinations

One simple, user-friendly spreadsheet, with a series of tabs which gives detailed individual feedback for trial examinations. This one has been designed to target the 9-1 grading for all religious studies/education courses. You will be able to analyse how students/cohorts are performing on individual questions, themes and skill areas. Once data for the trial exam paper and individual student's results are entered, you will be able to print an individually tailored sheet for each student to allow them to target their weaknesses, while motivating them by identifying areas of strength. This was created last year, and trialled for three subject areas and successfully created more motivated students, and the highest results for 5 years in these subjects. The spreadsheet can be adapted easily to suit other gradings, such as pathways/levels that schools might be adopting in KS3/KS5.
