Assessment and Mark Schemes

How to use

  • At Edusites we think carefully about how teachers use our resources. These assessments have been written by experts and are designed to suit your needs both for this academic year and for future use.

Taking the exams

  • You have a choice of doing the whole paper as a mock or separating the questions for classroom use. We are aware that most schools teach one text and printing the whole paper is unnecessary. Because of this you are able to click on the exam paper and cut the text off the site and paste it onto a word document or PowerPoint. The look of the exam question is not affected by your software.
  • At the end of the resource you will find the full exam paper which is downloadable and printable. This is a copyrighted document and as such must not be shared with any other institution.
  • So using Mansfield Park as an example I would print the extract for my class, pull open the ‘Mansfield Park Exam Questions’ and cut them off the site and put into either a word document or powerpoint slides.

Marking and grading these exams

  • The resources are based around your marking being a collaborative effort with your students and the online slides facilitate this.
  • Each question has a slide show which takes you and your students through the various levels along with indicative content.
  • Of course you can still mark these exam papers using the slides on your own but we wanted to give you the opportunity to run a feedback class which enabled students to see where they could improve their responses.
