A set of five teacher "Subject Knowledge Audits" for the A level (Sept 2015 onwards) 'Social Science' subjects;
Business (AQA 7132)
Computer Science (OCR H446)
Economics (AQA 7136)
Psychology (AQA 7182)
Sociology (AQA 7192)
These have been produced to allow a RAG+ rating of all aspects of the A level curriculum coverage of each specification in a self-calculating spread sheet optimised for printing if required. A rating is entered as a number 1,2,3,4, or 5 against each element.
The 'Analysis' tab compiles all of the information onto one page to allow; an overview of CPD need; identification of delivery responsibility and inform subject priority.
The RAG+ rating (which can be edited) defines as:
5 (Purple) I have expertise in this topic; I would be confident to provide CPD in this area; I know how to deliver this content to allow students to confidently access full marks in exams.
4 (Blue) I have very secure subject knowledge in this area; I know how this topic area will be assessed in exams
3 (Green) I understand the key features of this topic, but would need to spend some time brushing up on aspects before delivering it; I would welcome chance to discuss this topic in the department to clarify some points; I have not taught this topic before, and may not be able to answer some student questions.
2 (Amber) I have an outline understanding of the topic but would need support to feel confident enough to teach it; I would feel uncomfortable if students asked stretching questions in this area.
1 (Red) I am unfamiliar with this topic, and would not be able to deliver it without significant preparation which may include internal/external support.
Teachers can add comments against each section when a RAG+ rating does not allow a representative picture.
The two images in the files section will give you a preview of a completed audit for Business.
