It’s worth 15% of the exam - don’t leave it to chance!
Here’s a detailed interactive spoken example of the EAPI for OCR A LEVEL PE which will enable your students to fully understand the requirements of and prepare thoroughly for this important part of the non examined assessment (NEA).
This engaging audio and visual resource puts your students firmly in the ‘learning driving seat’ and allows them to have complete control of their own learning and understanding by easily navigating to any section of the EAPI, whether it be strengths and weaknesses, progressive practices and coaching points or application of theory.
Providing your students with a step by step guide to the structure of the EAPI, this resource emphasises the use of key terminology and gives detailed spoken exemplar responses for each section, which include:
⁃ strengths and weaknesses (skills, fitness, tactics & overall success)
⁃ identification of a chosen weakness including justification and action plan for improvement
⁃ time frame (frequency and duration)
⁃ 6 detailed progressive practices
⁃ detailed coaching points for each progressive practice
⁃ application of theory, including: movement analysis, aerobic capacity, periodisation & training cycles, muscle fibre types, skill classification, types & methods of practice, methods of guidance, types of feedback, stages of learning and social facilitation
⁃ pre and post test measures for improvement
The sport used in this example is hockey, but the principles of much of the content are generic and can be applied to any number of different sports.

This is an interactive multiple choice resource using PowerPoint which will really help you assess your students' learning. Not many other multiple choice resources offer so much.
1. Exam style questions are displayed - without initially showing any possible answer. This encourages students to think about what the correct answer might be, before the responses are shown. So you can also use this resource for short answer questions.
2. Students can then click on each of the numbers to make the corresponding response appear.
3. If a student is sure that a particular response is incorrect, they can click on the corresponding number again to make the response disappear - thus helping to develop good exam technique as eliminating incorrect responses is good exam practice.
4. Students then choose which answer is correct and click on the main text of the response to receive immediate feedback about their response. If they are correct, the response turns green, however, if the response is incorrect the response turns red AND feedback about that response is provided, thus helping students move forward with their learning.
This is also an excellent resource to use for whole class teaching on the interactive whiteboard as a starter or plenary activity and it great for assessing learning.
If you are using iPads, or other tablets students can download the PowerPoint app (for free) from the App Store or Google Play. You can easily and simply push the resource to your students through Showbie.
This resource can also be put onto your school VLE allowing for rich and deep personalised learning away from the classroom.
