Insertion Sort and Merge Sort Self-Marking Questions

Insertion Sort and Merge Sort Self-Marking Questions

Designed for GCSE/A-Level students who are taking computer science. Helpful also for A-Level maths students. It is a self-marking excel sheet that will test students on insertion sort and merge sort, giving them an outline for how to write the answers to such questions in exams. In the top left corner there is a cell to input a number, by inputting this number, it will change the values in the insertion/merge sort question.

Cosmopolitan Coding - Fun INSET Introduction to Coding

Cosmopolitan Coding - Fun INSET Introduction to Coding

Many teachers were never taught the coding and computer science elements of the new curriculum themselves. This introductory activity helps teachers understand the simplicity of using algorithms as instructions to complete tasks. Teachers will learn: Algorithms and how these are simple instructions Syntax and how this is simply known action in new language Problem solving and debugging code Testing code to see if it works Teachers love this INSET introduction!

End of KS3 Computer Science assessment test

End of KS3 Computer Science assessment test

This test is ideal to use as an end of KS3 test which can either be used to provide a VERY APPROXIMATE predicted grade for GCSE (9-1) Computer Science or to help you decide which pupils you think will be suitable for selecting the subject at GCSE. Alternatively, it can be used as a baseline assessment at the start of year 10 or when a new pupil joins your school to help you find gaps in their knowledge. It covers the following areas: • Programming skills • Binary • Inside a computer (hardware and software) • Networks • Computers and the law There is a 7-page A4 PDF document containing the test to photocopy and give out to the pupils, a 4-page PDF document containing the mark scheme and a 1-page PDF document for the teacher giving guidance on how to administer the test and giving very approximate predicted grades for GCSE (9-1).

GCSE Computer Studies Revision – Exam Question Practice and Exam Technique

GCSE Computer Studies Revision – Exam Question Practice and Exam Technique

This activity sheet allows students to practice exam questions. They will be given a question to answer or pick their own question to answer from an exam paper, revision book or any other appropriate revision resource and answer the question on the sheet. Once the question has been answered the students can self or peer mark the answer by looking up the answer on a mark scheme or revision source. Students can discuss with peers the answer and exam technique and correct any mistakes made. The activity sheet allows four questions to be answered on each side (print on both sides to save paper). The marking of the answers can be set as a peer or self assessment task or worked through with the teacher.
