General Discussion / GCSE OCR B Get Ahead - INSET
« on: November 18, 2010, 09:10:48 PM »
I was at the Get Ahead INSET today and thought it was useful how the chief examiner explained how each question is structured:

3 marks for skills e.g. OS map reading, graph reading, photograph analysis. (point marking)

2 marks for knowledge e.g. definitions (point marking)

3 x 4 mark questions testing knowledge and understanding - (point marking) These are marked either 4x1 (4 relevant points, 1 mark each) or 2x2 (2 relevant points and development)

8 mark case study (level marked) (Will always have opportunity to develop 3 ideas)
L1 (1-3 marks) 3 simple points
L2 (4-6 marks) 3 developments of the simple points. (Can reach L2 without making 3 simple points)
L3 (7-8 marks) Given for place specific detail e.g. dates, specific facts e.g. no. dead etc. (Cannot reach L3 without 3 developed points)

I thought this will come in really useful when training pupils for the terminal exam.

Some people (like me!)  cannot upload to the ning because my approval is still pending, that is why I set up the 4shared.

I've managed to upload something to share for OCR B geographers out there :)
A couple of documents I use when it comes to revision time.
The page numbers refer to the CGP revision guide.

I too agree.  If this rise in tuition fees happened when I was applying for university I wouldn't have been able to go and therefore be teaching now.

We’re all going on a summer holiday–how can tourism affect the physical environment?

Well, it's that time of year again, we get to open the booklets on 25th November.  I'm guessing it's going to be on sustainable tourism. 

Does anybody have any good sites, resources, video clips etc to share?

I will post what I find as and when.

Thanks for your thorough answer.  I too work in a very working class comp with results way below the national average.  We have been told to 'raise our game' so I am willing to try something new.  I also would prefer more controlled assessment but all the specs are the same at 25% and I like the idea of more modules so more opportunity to retake.  Thanks for your advice and taking the time to reply :)

I marked online this year for OCR B GCSE and examiners do mark whole scripts, not just part of a question.
