Innovative items used

Not just multiple choice

Multimedia (Audio)

GCSE Applied French

- mock in Jan.2006 – 50 centres (1500 learners)

- first live exam in June 2006 (50 centres)


Assessment by ePortfolio

- developing systems to moderate and, where appropriate, collect Learners work from ePortfolios

- involves working with 3rd party suppliers and standards bodies to ensure access to information is possible across various ePortfolio systems


An example of assessment by ePortfolio:

Diploma in Digital Applications

- Project brief delivered to the Centre via the internet

- Candidates compile multi-media portfolio onscreen

- ePortfolios are marked by the centre

- ePortfolios then accessed by moderators via internet

- moderator’s report sent to awarding body via internet

- Certificate issued (on paper and through the post)

( ? One step away from assessment on demand ? )
