Changes to non-exam assessment for Eduqas GCSE (9-1) Computer Science
Ofqual has asked all the exam boards to impose additional controls and processes to support the management of non-exam assessment (NEA) in GCSE (9-1) Computer Science.
To ensure a consistent approach is taken across exam boards, WJEC Eduqas has been working with AQA, OCR and Pearson to design some common controls and processes, that will be implemented by all boards.
The key process controls are outlined in a joint awarding organisation statement. These measures will be first implemented from September 2017, to coincide with the release of the first NEA tasks.
Key points to note:
The first NEA tasks will be released on 1 September 2017. The deadline for submitting NEA marks will be 31 March 2018.
Exam boards will conduct additional moderation checks before results are issued.
From September 2017, some centres will be selected for visits. These visits will take place between September 2017 and March 2018.
Our GCSE (9-1) Computer Science specification has been accredited by Ofqual. The specification is available to teach in schools and colleges in England from September 2016.
The sample assessment materials include exemplar question papers and mark schemes.
