GCSE Computer Science Module Quiz - Ethical, Legal and Environmental - Linked to Knowledge Organiser

GCSE Computer Science Module Quiz - Ethical, Legal and Environmental - Linked to Knowledge Organiser

This is a module summary quiz on the topic of Ethical, Legal and Environmental Impact. Includes questions on legal issues, environmental impact and some larger scale ethics consideration questions. The assessment features a range of question types and includes full worked solutions and answers. I print these 2 to a page and use them as a low stakes quiz at the end of a module. I will also be reusing them as a revision resource for my year 11s. These module quizzes are linked to the Knowledge Organisers I have also made and are available on TES. Most of the content is featured on the similarly named organiser, but would still be more than suitable without the use of the organisers. Any questions, please feel free to ask. Thanks, Toby Watkins
