    This guy understands the idiocy of Levels, and rather than blindly following a pre-defined SoW and complaining that the students 'haven't been properly prepared for it' by his Primaries, is actively changing something that is directly in his control (the Year 7 / KS3 SoW) to meet the actual needs of his students. And he's implemented it efficiently, at a good scale, and in a reasonably rigorous manner.

    This guy's succeeded in doing exactly what I failed to achieve several year ago. Well done to him.

    I think and hope it will become a commonplace approach in some years' time.

    You're right MMT, that post does contain a lot of valuable stuff and appetisers!

    I'm going to find out about that QuickKey for a start! Love that idea!!!!!

    Agree, Quickkey looks really interesting, and this is exactly what I was saying about my GCSE class recently that we are teaching higher level work when the foundations are shaky at best.
     
  4. This looks like a nice project for R.

    Thanks.

    (I've been looking for a fairly unique data set idea for a while).
