Write a review of a resource you purchase, and I will offer you your next one free :-)

AQA GCSE ART& DESIGN Assessment Objective Formative Reviews

AQA GCSE ART& DESIGN Assessment Objective Formative Reviews

(1)
These are a great resource for GCSE Art & Design teachers who want to** formatively review their students work **- telling them exactly what they have done well for each AO, and crucially - how they can do better!! The mark scheme for each Assessment Objective is stated on each of the 4 sheets, with a list of formative review comments that the teacher just highlights to state what the student could do to improve their mark. This is easy for the student to understand, and works well when photocopied to send home to parents & carers too - as by adding your own photo of the students work, it’s easy to see what needs developing! Students respond in their own WDYT section, to the teacher marks - so this ticks PIXL / formative assessment / AfL boxes really clearly… Two samples of completed reviews are included too, so you can see the end product with real samples from GCSE students this year! I used them in my own classes, and they made a massive impact on the students responses to their grades - they really took ownership of the reviews, and our grades rocketed as a consequence!

AO countdown plans for AQA GCSE ART & DESIGN

AO countdown plans for AQA GCSE ART & DESIGN

(0)
Art & Design GCSE teachers will find these countdown documents VERY useful. I have found that using them has boosted our grades to 5% above National Average - and I work in a deprived Academy! Each one charts the activities pupils can follow, as they plan for their final or mock exams. They could also be adapted for use with coursework projects. The issue many art teachers have [myself included!!] is OBLIGING pupils to make work, even if they are ‘stuck’ for ideas. These sheets minimise that possibility. They make pupils create outcomes, EVERY lesson. This generates work that is then presented for each Assessment Objective. I have found it really focusses and motiviates the pupils, if they have to mount up work for each AO on a display sheet. Each of these countdowns: has 3 tiers of difficulty for each task set - allowing you to differentitate can be adapted to suit your calendar - just change the dates, and number of 3 tiers lessons you need in each week can be printed off individually, or merged into one document, for display can be shared with parents/carers - electronically if you wish - so its easy for them too to know, what their children should be working on. So; no blank pieces of paper, and no blank stares from stressed out pupils, stuck for ideas! Do try these yourself, and let me know how you get on :-)

I have found that using them has boosted our grades last year to 16% above National Average - and I work in a deprived Academy! Each one, for each of the 4 assessment objectives, charts the activities pupils can follow, as they plan for their final or mock exams. They could also be adapted for use with coursework projects. The issue many art teachers have [myself included!!] is OBLIGING pupils to make work, even if they are “stuck” for ideas. These sheets minimise that possibility. They make pupils create outcomes, EVERY lesson. This generates work that is then presented for each Assessment Objective. I have found it really focuses and motivates the pupils, if they have to mount up work for each AO on a display sheet. Each of these countdowns: has 3 tiers of difficulty for each task set - allowing you / your pupil to differentiate can be adapted to suit your calendar - just change the dates, and number of 3 tiers lessons you need in each week can be printed off individually, or merged into one document, for display can be shared with parents/carers - electronically if you wish - so its easy for them too to know, what their children should be working on. I have included them in different formats; in word - so you can just print them off; trim off my own lesson dates or have your pupils alter them? in excel - so can adapt them to suit your own dates, and insert / delete tasks in excel - an overview of all 4 AO’s - that you can again adapt if you wish, then clip into your planner So; no more blank pieces of paper, and no more blank stares from stressed out pupils, stuck for ideas! Lesson by lesson, your exam work is produced… Do try these yourself, and let me know how you get on :-)

AQA ART& DESIGN KS4 ASSESSMENT BUNDLE

AQA ART& DESIGN KS4 ASSESSMENT BUNDLE

(0)
3 Items that will make assessing your KS4 Art & Design pupils so much easier! Using the grade boundaries published by AQA last year, I’ve created resources that work for my own pupils, that tell them what grades they have - and so also - how to get better! Here are: An assessment grid in language pupils can understand - that you can highlight / write on - with the boundary marks for each GCSE grade, stated A sheet of last years grade boundaries - that you can print off, for pupils to glue into their folders / sketchbooks A marking tracker, that you can use to formatively record your marks on, with a space for pupils to write in their comments, too I have found that by sharing the marking I do, and giving the pupils the chance of a re-mark, pupils [and parents] now more readily not just the grade they have - but what they can do to get better. These helped us improve our departments marks by 10% to above national average last year!
