About the Webinar

This webinar will provide school leaders, subject leads and teachers with practical advice and guidance on how they should be awarding grades to students in summer 2020.

On the 3rd April, Ofqual released their ‘Summer 2020 grades for GCSE, AS and A level, Extended Project Qualification and Advanced Extension Award in maths’ guidance. The guidance states that:

  • Schools and colleges should focus on making ‘centre assessment’ grades for their students, taking into account the full range of evidence available.
  • Use professional experience to award grades they believe would have been most likely achieved if exams were sat.

In this webinar we explore the key areas that schools should consider when formulating their grades and ensuring fair, objective and carefully considered judgements when applying remote assessment methods.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding how ‘centre assessment’ methods work and unpicking the new Ofqual guidance

  • Identifying practical strategies when employing fair and unbiased remote assessments methods

  • Recognising ‘standardisation and accuracy’ and ensuring grades are fair between schools and colleges

  • Clarifying the submission process, evidence collation and arrangements for results and progression

  • Understanding how a centre assessment approach affects different subjects and different categories of students
