FULL BREAKDOWN EDUQAS NEW SPEC A LEVEL TRACKER SPREADHSEET JUNE 2017 GRADE BOUNDARIES

FULL BREAKDOWN EDUQAS NEW SPEC A LEVEL TRACKER SPREADHSEET JUNE 2017 GRADE BOUNDARIES

This tracker, as with the others in my store, is designed to make the lives of your A level Media Studies teachers easier, whilst also providing an effective tool for promoting self evaluation in students. The formula is all in place, all you have to do is export the info from SIMS, copy and paste, then enter the marks for your mocks/assessed pieces as they're done and as you complete each question, a predicted grade will be offered. When completing a component you will be given an overall predicted grade based on the % of marks that students has achieved. I have come to the final grade by calculating the % of marks students required in order to achieve each grade on the old spec (different for exam and coursework components). I have then reweighted this based on the number of marks available in the new spec. This, from what I can tell, is the best way of estimating grades on the new specification. As with all new specifications, this is guesswork. Please approach the grades given with caution and always explain to students/parents/SLT etc that this is simply a best guess until the exam board provide something more conclusive. The spreadsheet calculates grades for each separate component as well as an overall grade for the qualification. Furthermore, I've added a 6 mark buffer to account for grade boundary increases Any queries or clarification, or any faults with the spreadsheet, please contact me directly at steel123@hotmail.com and I will happily try to repair or resolve any problems. Happy with your purchase? Please leave a positive review so that this is promoted to others that may benefit!

(YEAR 12, EDUQAS  LINEAR): AN INTRODUCTION TO CODES AND CONVENTIONS OF NEWSPAPERS (SEC A) STARTER

(YEAR 12, EDUQAS LINEAR): AN INTRODUCTION TO CODES AND CONVENTIONS OF NEWSPAPERS (SEC A) STARTER

This starter is an engaging way to encourage learners to interact with key Newspaper front cover terminology. The task is; interactive, promotes discovery learning and can either be executed as part of a group or as a standalone, independent task. Summary of task: The resource includes 4 newspaper covers (The Sun, The Daily Mail, The Daily Mirror and The Times) which will develop learners baseline knowledge of the newspaper market and have been carefully selected (two belonging to the forms EDUQAS has selected). The resource also includes all of the key terms as well as their definitions muddled as well as a two slide power point that both explains the task and shows students the terms. The task goes as follows: In groups of four, you will each be give a different newspaper front cover. Each group will have exactly the same terms and definitions assigned to each newspaper, regardless of whether they are on the newspaper or not. You must first match the correct term to its definition and then place the term on the area of the newspaper you believe it references. (TIP: If you laminate both the newspaper and cut of the laminated arrows, I have left a space at the top of each arrow for student to physically write on the term in a board marker, which can be rubbed off after). Be warned a cover may not have an example of the terms on it!

All lessons are developed with differentiation, assessment/challenge as well as engagement entrenched heavily within all my resources. Moreover, constant reference is made throughout to the selected Examiner Media.

FULL BREAKDOWN Eduqas GCSE Media Studies 9-1 tracking spreadsheet tracker using WJEC 2017 summer

FULL BREAKDOWN Eduqas GCSE Media Studies 9-1 tracking spreadsheet tracker using WJEC 2017 summer

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. This NEW AND IMPROVED sheet will auto calculate total marks on each unit AS WELL AS ESTIMATED GRADES FOR EACH QUESTION - 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! For reference - I have mapped an old D grade to a new grade 3, a C to a 4, a B to a 5, an A to a 7 and an A* to an 8. Any problems with this or formula doing strange things, please contact me on steel123@hotmail.com
