Psychology

This video focuses on three aspects of assessment in A-level Psychology. They are the link between the specification and exam questions, how to use appropriate language in assessment tasks and  how a mark scheme is written to reflect the question wording and to be a useful assessment tool.

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?
