GCSE Computer Science Module Quiz - Development, Testing and Errors - Linked to Knowledge Organiser

GCSE Computer Science Module Quiz - Development, Testing and Errors - Linked to Knowledge Organiser

This is a module summary quiz on the topic of Development, Testing and Errors. Includes question on trace tables, along with unit testing vs system testing. 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

Fonts Wordsearch Sheet Starter Activity Keywords Cover ICT Computing Computer Science

Fonts Wordsearch Sheet Starter Activity Keywords Cover ICT Computing Computer Science

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet of keywords on the theme of ‘Fonts’. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!
