Assessment, Marking & Resources for A-level Mathematics

Overview

This twilight course, for teachers of AS and A level Mathematics, provides an opportunity to look at the Assessment Objectives and some common principles for marking examination papers. The session will end with a look at some useful resources to help online lesson delivery.

Aims

  • To look briefly at the three Assessment Objectives and how they are weighted.
  • To look at exemplar questions and see how the different types of marks were awarded.
  • To have an opportunity to assess some students' work and see how the marks were assigned.
  • To see the wording on recent papers which prohibit 'calculator only' solutions.

Who will benefit from attending?

All teachers of A level Mathematics, who would like to develop their knowledge and practice, in the light of marking and, therefore, seeing common errors made by students on recent examination papers.

Delegates will get a copy of the Presentation and access to Google Drive link containing all the resources referred to during the session and a lot more!
