OCR GCSE Computer Science 9-1 2018 Paper Marking Grid

(3)
I have created this marking grid to use with the OCR Computer Science 9-1 June 2018 papers. When marking the mock exams for my Year 11, if they show some knowledge of the topic, I will put the marks awarded in the ‘Knowledge demonstrated’ column, whereas if they get low or 0 marks, I will put the mark in the ‘Area for further revision’ column. This way, when students receive their feedback, they can target revision at their weaker areas prior to re-testing. I hope it can be of use. Thanks for taking an interest in this resource.

Developed this resource as alternative end of unit test for the students.\n\nIt combined questions on:\nBusiness enterprise, business activity, business sectors and business ownership\n\nThe financial document trail.\n\nIt was differentiated so students chose the question they felt most confident answering. The rule was a few sentences for bronze, a paragraph for silver and two paragraphs for gold.\n\nIt worked well, and demonstrated the progress students had made in the half term.
