NEW SPEC EDUQAS AS LEVEL MEDIA STUDIES ASSESSMENT TRACKER AUTO GRADE CALCULATOR BASED ON JULY 17

NEW SPEC EDUQAS AS LEVEL MEDIA STUDIES ASSESSMENT TRACKER AUTO GRADE CALCULATOR BASED ON JULY 17

This tracker, as with the others in my store, is designed to make the lives of your AS 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 a component you will be given a predicted grade based on the % of marks that students has achieved. I have come to the final grade for each unit by calculating the % of marks students required in order to achieve each grade on the old spec (different for exam and coursework components) from WJEC's June 2017 boundaries. 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. I've also added a 6 mark safety buffer column, were the boundaries to be this much higher. If you are entering your students for A level only, the same has been created for A level only - please search my shop for this. 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!

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.
