ALL Who are you?
  • Teachers / Managers / Advisors
  • Managers
  • Secondary
  • State / private
  • Other (boards?)
  • 'I'm certain which GCSE to choose'(disagree /
    tend to disagree / tend to agree / agree)

5
What is in your mind?
  • Which spec is going to get my pupils the best
    grade?
  • Which spec will allow for better TL over 2
    years?
  • Which spec gives the best assessment experience?
  • Which spec is the most easily managed?
  • Which spec allows for the most choice for my
    dept?
  • Which spec ensures the most collaboration for my
    dept?
  • Which spec is the least likely to mean I get flak
    from pupils / colleagues / parents /
    managers?!!!!
  • ... NB .. no outright recommendations here ...
    more of a process with hopefully a useful summary
    / indicators
  • SHOULD be .. What's best for OUR PUPILS ....

6
The process!
  • It is important and easier if you know where your
    'stakeholders' / audience are starting from
  • staff in your dept
  • your managers
  • pupils
  • parents
  • governors
  • Throughout the process, think about how you would
    explain the situation / decisions to others ...
    e.g. forthcoming Into the Upper School Handbook /
    evening

7
What is the context?
  • Parents of pupils already been through KS4 /
    colleagues will have an idea of what to expect.
  • Know what the 'background' is .. Critical point
  • QCA (Qualfications and Curriculum Authority)
    produce the GCSE criteria to which the boards
    must write the specifications ...
  • these are NON-NEGOTIABLE
  • GCSE qualification criteria(for all subjects)
    show
  • GCSE subject criteria for modern foreign
    languagesshow
  • QCA Guidelines documentation for controlled
    assessment

8
What is the 'history'? - GCSE Review
  • Context
  • 14-19 Education Skills (see previous)
  • GCSE 1988-1996- prescribed content, use of
    English, access to both tiers, points system,
    clear assessment criteria
  • GCSE 1996-2001 - little change to content, target
    language testing, select tier, points for each
    skill needed, no dictionaries
  • GCSE 2003 onwards - emphasis on grammar

9
GCSE Review
  • Issues
  • Subject content too prescriptive? progression
    from KS3? boring? demand of grammar? (how does it
    differ from A/AS?)
  • Scheme of assessment for S, L, R W fit for
    purpose? use of Target language / English?
    valid/reliable? coursework / controlled
    conditions? use of dictionaries?
  • Severe Grading impact on judgements made by
    pupils / teachers / managers / governors /
    inspectors (PTO!)

10
GCSE Review
  • Outcome from review ...
  • 20 - 30 for 4 skills
  • Tiering retained
  • Instructions to candidates in English
  • Some choice of context/purpose in S W
  • Relevant contexts and purposes
  • Short course EITHER SL OR RW
  • Published Dec - Submissions by March - accredited
    Sep 08 - first teaching Sep 09

11
GCSE qualification criteria
'where controlled assessment is required,
specifications must be developed in accordance
with guidance documentation produced by
regulators'
12
GCSE subject criteria
  • Aims learning outcomes
  • Subject content
  • Assessment objectives (incl weighting 20-30 per
    skill)
  • Scheme of assessment (not required to be in TL
    40 external, 60 controlled, SW must be be
    controlled)
  • Grade descriptions (C range...'may relate to
    past and future')
  • Appendix grammar requirements
  • (analysis of changes of ALL London website)

13
GCSE controlled assessment regulations (MFL pp
74-78)
  • Task setting - SW - limited control
  • exemplar - characteristics of language required -
    allow adaptation design of own tasks (clearly
    defined parameters regular replacement)
  • Task Taking S-medium control W - high control
  • guidance re preparation stage
  • authenticity control (MUST be informal
    supervision)
  • feedback control
  • time control (W must be agreed with regulators)
  • collaboration control, (S must allow to be
    informed by working with others, but response
    must be individual W all must be independent)
  • resource control (S no dictionary, but access to
    notes / visual stimulus Wmust have dictionary
    (could be online), may access notes (not early
    drafts, no online spell/grammar checkers)
  • Task marking S- medium, W, high

14
Elements to consider when selecting your board ...
  • Which boards available to me for my subject?
  • What examination periods are available?
  • What do the networks advise?
  • How suitable for my cohort?
  • What support is available from the board?
  • What are the resource implications of this board?
  • What is the 'prescribed' content - does it allow
    for progression and continuity in my school?
  • How would my pupils perform with the assessment
    stimuli / response of the sample papers?
  • How clearly do I understand the assessment
    criteria - especially of the parts I have to mark
    / moderate?
  • How would my school accommodate the requirements
    of the controlled assessment?

15
Which boards available to me for my subject?
  • French, German Spanish available for all boards
    additional according to the board ...
  • AQA
  • CCEA
  • Edexcel
  • OCR
  • WJEC
  • see handout page 3

HOD consideration could be to have the same board
for all languages to facilitate management and
sharing ideas / techniques
16
What examination periods are available?
  • AQA - LSRW June 2010 onwards, LR in addition Jan
    2011 onwards for Fr Sp and Gn
  • CCEA - SW June 2010 onwards, LSRW 2011 onwards

    Jan 2011 onwards

    2011 onwards
  • see handout page 3
  • CERTIFICATION
  • Short course 2010 AQA, Edexcel OCR
  • Short course 2011 and Full course 2011 All boards

Is there an advantage for the option of 'banking'
LR (AQA) or SW (Edexcel) / having opportunity
for re-sit?
How soon do you want to certify the short course?
17
What do the networks advise?
  • Awareness that certain 'groups' of schools
    traditionally may follow certain boards ...

Is there an advantage in taking the same board as
other schools in your 'Family of schools'? Are
there any 'traditional expectations' of taking a
particular board?
18
How suitable for my cohort?
  • Awareness that certain 'groups' of schools
    traditionally may follow certain boards ...

19
What support is available from the board?
  • Availability of people to help you esp. for
    controlled assessment (24 hour support AQA, large
    staff, Edexel)

    the board?)
  • Dialogue with teachers
  • Publication of results
  • Teacher notes
  • On-line help for preparation and planning
  • Dedicated / bespoke resources
  • Sample assessment papers
  • Training and workshops

Ask the boards Does size matter to you?
20
What are the resource implications for this board?
  • Will you need new text books to cover the topics
    required?
  • What is your experiences of the authors /
    publishers of the endorsed text books ? (AQA
    Nelson Thornes Edexcel Heinemann OCR Oxford)
  • Can assessments be conducted reasonably with
    current proviison for supervision / times

21
Content Progression continuity?
  • NB Context
  • Common grammar lists
  • Requirement to allow choice of S W context (but
    clear that purposes must be different for each
    task)
  • Do any of the boards 'stand out' as having a
    more suitable topics for your school (see the
    starter quiz!)

Different lay-out and quantity of vocab - see
page 6 (available as a list on London ALL site)
Topic headings / organisation may be more
appealing to you Fundamentally, all very similar
except for Edexcel L R focus (in principle)
