Physics

This video looks at how the general assessment principles are applied in A-level Physics. Starting with a detailed look at the assessment objectives, the video considers the assessment framework for Science, and the different types of questions. It looks at the language of questions and how we can vary the level of demand of a question to suit its purpose. The video also provides insights into how we develop our assessments.

Questions you may want to think about

  • How can you use these insights to prepare your learners for exams?
  • Do your internal assessments reflect the approach of the exam? To what extent do you want them to?
  • What’s the most important or surprising thing that you’ve learned? How might it influence your teaching?
