NEW SPEC 9-1 EDUQAS MEDIA STUDIES GCSE TRACKING DOCUMENT SPREADSHEET from 2017

NEW SPEC 9-1 EDUQAS MEDIA STUDIES GCSE TRACKING DOCUMENT SPREADSHEET from 2017

Designed on Microsoft excel, this tracking document will help you keep track of the progress of your KS4 Media Studies students, with specific columns for section of each exam paper and for individual coursework marks. The sheet will auto calculate total marks on each unit - which will be converted into a 9-1 grade as well as totalling overall marks, which then feed into an overall grade prediction. The predictions have been calculated using last year's WJEC grade boundaries and the % of marks needed for each grade on each unit. This % mark has then been converted for the new weighting on the new spec. All you need to do is add the pupil information and the marks they have achieved for each question and the rest is done for you. Please be aware that these are not official grade boundaries and it is guess work at this stage. I have tried to make my predictions as reliable as possible by converting from old spec boundaries and converting % etc, but cannot guarantee that these will be the exact boundaries provided by the board. I have also created similar spreadsheets for AQA GCSE English 9-1, old spec AQA Media GCSE and Media A level too; check out my shop for these. A Level will too be added in due course - subscribe for notifications! Any problems with this or formula doing strange things, please contact me on steel123@hotmail.com PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT THE FIRST VERSION OF THIS SPREADSHEET HAD A COLUMN MISSED FROM CALCULATIONS. IT HAS BEEN REPAIRED AND CHECKED AGAIN AND APPEARS FINE. IF YOU BOUGHT THIS BEFORE LUNCHTIME ON 14TH SEPTEMBER YOU MAY NEED IT FIXING. PLEASE SEND IT TO ME AT STEEL123@HOTMAIL.COM AND I'LL RETURN ASAP. ONLY A TWO MINUTE JOB! SORRY FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE.

Creative Digital Media Production: Level 2, Unit 8 - Scheme of Work, Handouts and Presentations

Creative Digital Media Production: Level 2, Unit 8 - Scheme of Work, Handouts and Presentations

Using these resources I have had 100% pass rates in the level 2 unit 8 exam since implementation. This includes merits and distinctions. It is best to support this units teaching with weekly testing (I use Kahoot). Included you will find a Scheme of Work (including aims and objectives) for teaching towards the Unit 8 exam. The scheme covers every area needed to be taught for the unit 8 exam. Alongside the scheme you will also have handouts for each relevant session as well as any additional resources (some sessions involve tasks and student presentations where handouts are not utilised). Furthermore there will be links to Prezis to accompany teaching relevant sessions. You are free to edit all handouts and make a copy of each Prezi so that you can modify them to suit your needs. The scheme will take you throughout the Autumn term and prepare your students for examinations in January. This can be adjusted if only taking the summer examinations. There is time planned for a mock exam the week before half term and one before the Christmas break as well as time to complete extra revision/cram sessions on identified weak areas. A custom mock exam can be found in my unit 1 resource pack for the half term mock. It is recommended past papers are used in the final mock exam. The scheme works through every topic that is stated in the 2013 Creative Digital Media Production BTEC Specification. Preferably requires centres to have access to Photoshop. Each Lesson is timed to last 1.5 hours but can be adjusted accordingly.
