These two resources are specific grade descriptions and target marks for grades A* - C for the now old Edexcel GCSE Music course 2007 specification. One resource can be used as a display in the classroom (blown up to A3), and the other can be given to students. I teach boys only and found this really helped to focus them last year. The percentages are based on the 2009 grade boundries - I have rounded up when there was not a precise number.
These resources helped monitor student progress and were the the basis of many self-/peer- assessment performance lessons. The students found them clear to understand and use. Hopefully these resources will help save you some time trudging through the 'how Unit 1 is assessed' phase with your students.<br />
I've included both Word and PDF formats of the assessment sheets for ease of use and for you to edit as you wish.
<p>A range of display resources to support VCOP work. See attached document for notes on using the resources.</p> You might need to format it slightly depending on the word processing / presenting sofware you are running.
