RO22

Dear all, we are starting to teach R022 for the first time and was after a bit of advice.  It says they are allowed 10 hours.  I take it that that is 10 hours write up time?  If so do they do that in controlled conditions?  Is there any guidance as to what notes they can use?  Do you let them save their work in the files or do you save on USB sticks? I take it they have to chose one of the threee 'model assignments' from the OCR webiste labelled 'Live assessment material?'  Sorry for all the questions.  This is our first time through and would be grateful of any advice.  We are a centre in Southampton and would be grateful of any advice you can give us on setting up this internal assessment.

 

Many thanks

Hi Emma,

Each unit is 30 hours with the split being 20 hours teaching and 10 hours assessment. You do not have to time the learners, they can go over the 10 (but if they are going far beyond 10 hours it is likely that they may have misunderstood what to do as each assignment shouldn’t take much more than 10 hours).

Any of the 3 R022 assignments on the website (with 'Live Assessment Material' on the cover) can be used. Not all learners have to do the same one but it’s often easier for you to mark if you give them all the same one to complete. Learners shouldn’t have access to each other’s work in progress so they should have separate user profiles if saving to a network area (or USB would be fine).

It needs to be controlled as much as you can be confident the work is the learners own. It is not Controlled assessment and you don’t need to take posters down or ban internet access or anything like that, it’s the old Coursework regulations (like old A Level).

The idea is after the 20 hours, you give the learner the assignment and they respond independently to it. This means you may have vastly different evidence (task 1 some could choose to do a leaflet, others a presentation) and that is fine.

Hi Kay,

The June 17 papers are on Interchange at the moment (so you can use them without candidates seeing them) and includes the mark scheme. This is from the 'Resouces and materials>Past papers and mark schemes' section of Interchange. If you do not have access, your exams officer can download it for you.
