Data storage managing memory, data types and variables

Data storage managing memory, data types and variables

Resources for GCSE Computing course for the Data Representation topic. The Resource explains how different data is stored, so introducing data types and variables and shows how important it is to make sure the correct variables are selected by the programmer. An excel program ( input form and VBA coding) has been created for students to investigate for themselves what can go wrong in this respect.

SQL Knowledge Organiser GCSE OCR Computer Science J276

SQL Knowledge Organiser GCSE OCR Computer Science J276

My current year 11 students have been extremely positive about the Knowledge Organisers that I have created for their Computer Science revision (and students in previous years on the legacy spec). This resource covers database terminology; an example flatfile database; data types used in databases; example SQL commands to search a database and the results these would yield from the example table. This covers the new J276 OCR specification for GCSE Computer Science. You can either buy this knowledge organiser on its own - or all eight are available for a slightly lower overall cost. Please do leave feedback if possible, I hope you find it useful.

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.
