A comprehensive set of practical assessment booklets to fully fulfil the practical aspect of the course. Pupils will take responsibility for their own learning, these booklets require them to do the work NOT us! Lots of self assessment, students are coached on how to produce the ideal risk assessment etc. Pupils then transfer all of their marks to the front of the booklet for us to easily transfer into our spreadsheets. Keep these in a folder for each student ready for the next moderators visit. Exam questions are also at the end of each booklet, which are also self assessed and linked to the paper 2/3 specification.

AQA A Level Astrophysics Lens Diagram Revision

AQA A Level Astrophysics Lens Diagram Revision

As an astrophysics examiner, I have produced a PowerPoint which goes through the different types of lens diagram which need to be produced for the examination. I give hints and tips throughout. The idea is pupils produce the diagram and then mark it with the guidance provided. I've found this method to be very effective in the past.
