I am a science teacher in Liverpool and have been head of department and senior leadership. I have put resources on here that I know will be beneficial to both individual teachers and middle managers. I'm aware of the time constraints and the resources are to reduce workload as well as inform.

AQA AS Biology Quick Quizzes - Whole Course

AQA AS Biology Quick Quizzes - Whole Course

(1)
This resource contains 29 quick quizzes I have compiled for the AS AQA new Biology course. Each quiz has 10 questions of varying difficulty and then the answers. There is a linked excel sheet to record results and instructions as how to link the PowerPoint to the excel sheet (can be used without linking to the excel sheet as a stand alone resource too). The PowerPoint contains 29 quizzes spanning the whole AS course with questions and answers and an integrated results sheet to record the results from your class and a handy macro will rank them in order depending on their average through the quizzes. From the menu screen you can skip to any quiz and return back to the menu. Great for starters, plenaries and revision throughout the year.
AQA GCSE Science Required Practical Tracker Instructions

AQA GCSE Science Required Practical Tracker Instructions

(1)
I have put together a complete system of resources that will allow staff to easily record and monitor the required practical aspect of the new GCSE science that is replacing the old ISA coursework. The resources include Whole Class Practical Tracker, Pupil Cover Sheets for Each of the Practicals and an 'On-The-Day' Practical sheets (again one for each practical, for the teacher to use in class during the practical to record the Apparatus and Technique (AT) skills that each pupil has to be competent with. All of the resources compliment each other, use the key coding for assessment to reduce workload and make things easy. This is just the instructions with some screen shots to see what and how it works. I have mirrored the A'Level AQA Practical Assessment for the AQA GCSE, it just seemed logical so that the systems are similar. The resources outline will be bundled together and can be purchased from my store page. Enjoy.
GCSE PHYSICS - Learning the ELECTRICITY Equations

GCSE PHYSICS - Learning the ELECTRICITY Equations

(1)
Since the declaration that GCSE Science pupils wont be able to use equations sheets in future exams, I have been thinking of a system that will help them learn the equations and help staff in facilitating that learning. I have devised this. It is supposed to be used as a starter / plenary for pupils to go over and over and try to implant the equations over time. I will use it in every lesson, parrot fashion for success! This is not board specific as they all will need to learn them, and can be used for the current legacy GCSE students too as a revision resource. This PowerPoint has questions for the Electricity equations - on Units Questions, Resistance (R=V/I), Power (P=E/t), More Power (P=IV), Even More Power (P=I^2 R), and Electrical Energy (E=VQ). A demo of this which shows the Resistance questions is available for free in my store. There is another demo and full PowerPoint on Energy Equations on my page. I have used the template for my ABCD cards for this endeavour, but you don't need those to utilise these PowerPoints. Enjoy.
New Grade (9-1) GCSE Tracker
harretharret

New Grade (9-1) GCSE Tracker

(0)
This is my new GCSE grade 9-1 tracker. I have designed it so that it can be edited and changed so that it can be used in any subject. The sheet has space for 250 students to be housed. This sheet is your one stop place to track your GCSE class data. The sheet are 12 custom tests (which you can change the raw score and label) and 3 summative tests - these are collated to give an average and an old grade (A*-G) and the new GCSE grading system (9-1) along side each other AND the level of progress. The sheet will calculate the %, grades (old and new), averages and levels of progress.The tests are grouped into three sections (4 tests in each) so - science (Biology, Chemistry, Physics) or English (Written, Literature, Creative) etc. There are 3 Monitoring areas that you can record scores that go towards the whole school data - if this data is below the levels of progress then it will flag the possibility of intervention. Parts of the sheet are protected so that staff can only add their raw data and not accidentally enter where there are formulas that generate supplementary data. The sheet comes with instruction and the password to unlock locked areas of the sheet should you wish. There are screen shots on my page that are free to look at if you want to see what it can do and does before purchase.

I have put together a complete system of resources that will allow staff to easily record and monitor the required practical aspect of the new GCSE science that is replacing the old ISA coursework. The resources include Whole Class Practical Tracker, Pupil Cover Sheets for Each of the Practicals (10 required practical sheets) and an 'On-The-Day' Practical sheets (again one for each of the 10 Biology practicals), for the teacher to use in class during the practical to record the Apparatus and Technique (AT) skills that each pupil has to be competent with in Biology. This bundle covers the 10 required Biology practicals needed for the Combined Science and BIOLOGY GCSEs. All of the resources compliment each other, use the key coding for assessment to reduce workload and make things easy. I have mirrored the A'Level AQA Practical Assessment for the AQA GCSE, it just seemed logical so that the systems are similar. I have bundled these resources together to make it more cost effective. If you wish to see how the bundle works and see some screenshots then the instructions are a free download on my page. Enjoy.

DEMO - Formative Assessment Analysis Tool and Mail Merge Report Generator - INSTRUCTIONS

(0)
I have created an assessment analysis tool that can be used for any test up to 20 questions in length. The Excel sheet is primarily designed for science but could be redesigned for other subjects. A sheet is used to enter the year, title, question type, question marks and question description. All of these will be used to generate a report. The report will have individual information about a students progress in the test. The data generated will be - Total, %, Residual, Level (9-1), Levels of Progress and Progress label. Depending on how well students did for individual questions, the report will highlight which areas (where a student achieved 50% or less of the marks available) students need work on to get them to standard. The test is broken down into the individual science aspects so that staff, pupils and parents can be aware of the strengths and weaknesses of individuals so that areas can be addressed where the standard is below what is expected. I have attached the instructions for the sheet that shows how the sheet works and examples of the generated Mail Merge report. This sheet will not only inform staff, pupils and parents but save time for the staff and be an invaluable tool in identifying areas to help pupils reach their targets.
