I devloped these resources to use to assess the basic abilities of new students in Design & Technology. The baseline assessment can be run in all areas of technology and covers general skills like rendering, measuring, designing and the use of basic tools like scissors. Our students come from a range of feeder schools and come with a variety of different skills, this allows us to compare them easily.
This sceme can be run in any of the technology areas and does not require specific materials other than the basic stationary and thin card.
Included is a powerpoint that can be used to guide students through the task, a work booklet for students to complete and a scheme of work which details each lesson. Aimed to run over 4 x 1hr lessons but all resources are editable so can easily be adapted but can also be used as is.
