I attended the teachers meeting in the autumn and the Principal Moderator made it very clear that moderators should not provide feedback for several reasons. 1, they do not know what happens to their marks so they are not aware of any adjustments and what they might be. 2, AQA have Controlled Assessment Advisers who are authorised to give advice on project work and we should use them. I have been doing PD for some time and have never come across this issue. I would suggest that you contact the principal moderator, firstname.lastname@example.org to ask for help and advice. His school is well worth a visit if you are somewhere close to Bradford. I would also contact the D&T office at AQA and make a formal complaint as this should not have happened. AQA do run some great courses and I understand that they can send out someone to assist individual schools (I think they might charge for this) so don’t worry in isolation, speak to the experts. If your marks are changed and it does impact on the final grades you can appeal and have a second opinion. I hope it is not as bad as you imagined.
