Been teaching in a pretty typical FE College for five years. Have always taught the GCSE English AQA Spec. Typically, A-C results are around 86-90%, which is pretty good seeing as around 110-120 students usually sit it each this. However, just seen this year?s results ? the first where controlled assessments have been used. We?ve dropped to about 42% A-C. Gutted. I?m told that the exam results were generally quite sound, but the controlled assessment results dragged them down. Going to have to have a serious look at where we go from here. I only have them for two hours a week, so there is no way we can keep running the course like this ? out of maybe 70 classes with them across the year, around a quarter are lost at once through controlled assessments. Then, once we get into the time used with S&Ls and?) Anybody else had dire results?
