Assignment Briefs

Authorised Assignments

• Most principles of good assignment design have not changed – good scenarios which link to realistic tasks that generate valid evidence that can be reliably judged using assessment criteria

• Learning aims are the new building blocks for assignments

• Tasks must facilitate learners achieving higher grades

• Assignments should be a distinct component – not just a general part of activity

Assignment Briefs – top tips

• Work backwards from Distinction and then forwards from Level 2 Pass to think about what tasks and evidence would work

• Provide a scenario or context that links to those tasks – don’t forget to link the two together

• Criteria are not tasks – so think about using more general language to start • Criteria are not tasks – so think about using more general language to start

a task

• Find a balance in giving guidance – not a blow by blow list and not a vague direction

• Be very specific about the evidence – if there is observation make it clear how and when this would happen

Assessment Criteria Contextualised descriptors of what (evidence) the

learner must demonstrate to achieve the unit. To meet all the Learning Aims, all the Pass criteria must be achieved. Level 1 and 2. Qualitative improvement (grading) is reflected in the Merit and Distinction criteria.

Suggested Assignment Outlines

Suggested scenario based activities and assessment methods, showing assessment criteria covered – their links across pass, merit and distinction.

(11)

Delivery Methods – top tips

• Facilitate learner understanding by organising site visits that are relevant to the unit content

• Use industry contacts to set the scenario and introduce assignments • Plan a programme of units that meets learners needs whilst considering

centre resources including teaching experience and expertise

• Consider the placement of the core Construction Technology unit within the Consider the placement of the core Construction Technology unit within the programme as this underpins all units and helps to develop knowledge and understanding throughout the specification

• Link units where possible to provide a coherent learner experience eg Unit 2 Construction and Design with Unit 5 Construction Drawing Techniques

Activity 1:

In groups, using the authorised assignment

brief for unit 2 (Learning Aims –B and C),

consider how this might be amended for use in

your own centres

External Assessment- Guidance

The new BTEC qualifications for 2012 and 2013 feature an element of external assessment.

We’ve created a dedicated webpage to guide and support you through the various types of assessment.

How will the External Assessment work?

• Unit 1 Construction Technology provides the underpinning knowledge

required throughout the qualification

• Unit 11 Sustainability in Construction develops an understanding of how sustainability should be considered throughout the design, construction and use of the built environment

• Units 1 and 11 link together as unit 1 provides an introduction to the • Units 1 and 11 link together as unit 1 provides an introduction to the

concept of sustainability and some of the techniques used in sustainable construction

• Both units are paper based and carry a total of 50 marks • Candidates may be required to sketch construction details • Unit 11 includes a scenario for the final section of the paper • Check the specification wording eg how, what, where, why

Typical Multiple Choice Question Styles

Typical Extended Response Question

External Assessment

•Same grades as internally assessed units:

• Level 2 – Pass, Merit, Distinction • Level 1

• Unclassified

• You need to make sure that your learners are: • Fully prepared to sit the external assessment

• Entered for assessments at appropriate times, with due regard for re-sit opportunities as necessary

• Sample assessment materials will be available to help centres understand the nature of external assessment

Activity 2:

Using the award Specification discuss how Unit

1 (Construction Technology) supports the

delivery of knowledge and understanding

required for other units and vice versa

Examples of where unit 1 supports the delivery of

other units

Unit Unit 1 links

Unit 2 Construction and Design Materials and sustainability Unit 3 Scientific and Mathematical

Applications for Construction Performance requirements,strength and stability, thermal insulation

Unit 4 Construction Processes and

Operations Preconstruction work, substructure groundworks, superstructures, materials, on/off-site construction Unit 5 Construction Drawing

Techniques Sketching construction details

Units 6-10 Exploring Craft Units Reading drawings, materials, general understanding of how the craft links with other areas of construction

Internal Assessment

Teacher-led assessment remains at the heart of BTEC learning.

75%+ of the course is still assignments set – and assessed – by teachers and tutors. Clearly defined grading criteria so you and your learners know what’s expected at

Pass, Merit and Distinction

Assignment checking service: free support service to help ensure assignments

enable learners to demonstrate appropriate evidence across the required criteria.

Top tips: Assessment Feedback

Formative feedback

•Is given at the interim deadline stage

•Should look to encourage and guide learners to achieve higher criteria

•Gives a prediction of the learner’s achievement based on current performance

Summative feedback

•Given at the final deadlineGiven at the final deadline

•Is the assessment decision

•Gives full justification for the decision

•Is considered the terminal point for the assessment.

It is at the discretion of the Assessor whether they will accept one further re-submission following summative assessment, and this must be authorised by the Lead Internal Verifier.

Unit grading: rigour & progressive achievement

Unit Grades

Distinction Merit Level 2 Pass

Mastery Model (No change) This qualification is a level 2 qualification, and the certification may show a grade of Level 2 Pass, Level 2 Merit, Level 2 Distinction or Level 2 Distinction*. If these are not achieved, a Level 1 or Unclassified grade may be awarded. Level 2 Pass

Level 1 Unclassified (U)

Unit grades remain: Distinction, Merit & Pass at Level 2. NEW!

NEW: Level 2 qualification: includes Level 1 criteria to recognise achievement at this level.

Principles of Grading

Award of Distinction* (D*)

• D* is an aggregated grade for the qualification, based on the learner’s overall performance. In order to achieve this grade, learners will have to demonstrate a strong performance across the qualification as a whole. To achieve a Level 2 qualification learners must:

To achieve a Level 2 qualification learners must:

• Complete and report an outcome for all units within the permitted combination (NB Unclassified is a permitted unit outcome) • Have sufficient points across the core units, i.e. 24 points • Achieve the minimum number of points at a grade threshold from the

Principles of Grading

Learners who do not achieve a Level 2 may be entitled to achieve a Level 1 where they:

• Complete and report an outcome for all units within the permitted Complete and report an outcome for all units within the permitted combination (NB Unclassified is a permitted unit outcome) • Have sufficient points across the core units, i.e. 12 points • Achieve the minimum number of points for a Level 1.
