Undertaking a non examined assessment is an overwhelming task for both students and teachers. Providing the right type of support in terms of structure, approach and feedback, whilst adhearing to examining board rules and regulations is key. This PowerPoint provides a techer/ student discussion and walkthrough of a problem, to a possible solution. It also provides a structure for students to present their solution in an easy to mark format. Analysis, design, development and evaluation is covered. There is plenty emphasis on computational thinking and decomposing the problem to a managable size.

Scratch Exercises for computational thinking

(0)
Build students ability to make independent progress and think computationally with a range of programming skills using scratch. Students will learn vital keywords required as fundamental building block for computer science GCSE. Each exercise is independent of each other. Challenges range from simple to difficult and students are encouraged to consider and compare alternative solutions. Solutions for each challenge is provided, easy to follow and understand even for a non specialist teacher. This series of exercises is targeted at KS3 students, although KS4 students will also benefit from it as a revision tool for GCSE computer science. It is strongly advised that these exercises are used after students are taught fundamental skills from algorithms in scratch series.

The significance of Testing (Computer Science GCSE A453 Project)

(0)
Testing is one of the most important processes when working on the computer science GCSE A453 project. Without testing a new system (project) thoroughly students may loose vital marks. This Power Point demonstrates how complex and difficult it is to test every possible outcome and teaches students to understand even the most rigorous of testing may not catch every error in the program. There are example case studies of situations where new computer systems or software upgrades have caused major problems because they have not been tested properly. Students/Testers are encouraged actively try to break the system, pushing it to extremes to test its strength and resilience. Students will also learn to write and demonstrate use of test plan.
