Edexcel has introduced CD-Roms which replace bulky examination specifications and support materials for its GCSE German full course and French full and short courses. The CD- Roms will be updated annually and cover the specification, a specimen paper with mark scheme and the previous year's examination.
Formatted in PDF, individual pages can be printed as needed or material can be projected on screen. Files can be saved onto computer for each member of staff, eliminating the frustration of searching for the paper version when it mysteriously goes missing. Also included are the student guide, the coursework guide and the comprehensive teachers' guide, offering detailed advice on preparation for the examination as well as assessment criteria.
An oral training booklet with accompanying audio files provides 19 clearly-recorded samples of candidates' responses to the different sections of the oral examination, each with assessment commentary and mark. One regrettable omission is the mark scheme and examiner's report for 2003, which has to be purchased separately. Audio material for the listening paper is also only available on cassette. Minimum system requirements are Windows 98, 32MB Ram, 800 x 600 screen resolution.
