New AQA specification - Design Technology Unit1

New AQA specification - Design Technology Unit1

This is suitable for anyone teaching the new AQA Design & Technology specification. The multiple choice questionnaires come with the answers in an EXCEL format. If you operate within a G-mail education setting then these forms can be used in a Classroom format and 'SELF MARK' with the Flubaroo app. If you have a g-mail I will share the Unit 1 folder with you so it goes directly onto your Google drive. Hope you like and use within your lessons! Follow us on twitter @EPA_Technology

New GCSE AQA Design and Technology tracker (9-1)

New GCSE AQA Design and Technology tracker (9-1)

This tracker is for the new AQA GCSE Design and Technology course. The tracker has the NEA broken down into the 6 areas and will add up the total as you input the marks and predict an estimated grade (grade boundaries can be edited on tab bar three). Also I have set this to make the cell go red to indicate that the mark put in is higher than the section mark. I have included 4 mock (PPE) entries and it works out the average mark of the four mocks and an estimated grade. Then the last section adds the NEA and the average mock together and provides an estimated overall grade.
