I have created an assessment for KS4 which is the same format as the new GCSE 9-1 for Edexcel. I have simplified the assessment to really focus on assessing the content appropriately. The assessment is on one side of A4 paper. The second page is for teacher feedback using the WWW & EBI format. There is also space for students to respond to the teacher feedback. On the left panel i have updated the estimated 9-1 percentages (please note that this is likely to change once the first exam is sat on the new specification). I will be adding more assessments & a bundle for the whole of the new specification shortly. Please check out the lesson resources, power points etc for this new spec in my shop. https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/StudentFriendly

Certificate award template

Certificate award template

1. Print off to A5 size and laminate or print onto card, so your students can keep them. 2. Don't forget to change the teacher name & role. The date will update automatically every time. 3. The student award is optional. I like to get my students to do a secret vote for another person in the class who has demonstrated good/outstanding subject skills. The write the name & a reason onto a post-it note (they must give a reason to stop them voting for their friend). 4. Edit the line where it says "for achievement..." and change it to the reason for the student, e.g "for excellent revision materials" or "for improved participation to class discussion." 5. Run the award once every TWO WEEKS to stop it getting tedious, but consistency with the awards is key! The beauty of the student awards is that it creates a positive atmosphere in the classroom and my 6th former's absolutely love voting & they remind me when i forget!
