assignment resources

The Unit 06 Assignments are relatively straightforward, except that there is an unusual amount of content to cover which could get missed. As part of the RQF BTEC assessment procedures, assessors are not allowed to give students a list of tasks to cover to achieve a grade once the assignment is running. This means that learners can often forget to include key pieces of evidence, or to not provide evidence in the right format. TheComputingTutor is pleased to announce the release of a full set of Assignment resources for the Edexel BTEC IT UNIT 6 - Website Development. The resources are: • A full set of Student Guide Resources for covering Assignment 1 and 2. • A Teacher presentation showing your students how to approach each of the Assignments. • A Teacher resource document, with suggested hints and ideas for Unit delivery and how to structure the assignment content. • An editable PowerPoint and a printable PDF for each Student Guide. • Separate Student Guides for Pass, Merit and Distinction criteria. • A tracking sheet for your students to monitor their own progress based on COMPLETE, IN PROGRESS and NOT STARTED for all tasks.

Please note: this is not a theory resource; this resource focuses entirely on how to answer all the Assignment tasks.

Each Student Guide covers all the marking requirements for Pass criteria for Learning Aims A, B and C as well as showing extensive opportunities for where to include Merit and Distinction criteria evidence. The Student Guides are ideal for weaker candidates, or students struggling to organise their work, as it gives a simple, easy to follow checklist of all required Assignment criteria.​ Each guide has references on every page to where the required content is covered in the 2016 Authorised Pearson textbook as well as continual assessment opportunities so students can identify the areas they are struggling with so you can support them where allowed.​ You can use these Assignment resources for individual students who are finding the Assignment procedure challenging, or you can give the Guides to your entire group before they start each Assignment - the choice is yours.  The Student Guides only contain the required Assignment content headings, the actual theory content taught is entirely down to you. You have full control of each PowerPoint, so you can edit the slides and move them around to suit your teaching and the needs of your classroom. These resources will help your learners to know exactly what they have to do to independently achieve their grades.
