WJEC GCSE DESIGN & TECHNOLOGY

UNIT 2: RESISTANT MATERIALS TECHNOLOGY: CONTROLLED ASSESSMENT

Sample of information sent to centres. This information would be sent to centres by
September 1st 2010 for assessment that is completed in July 2011.

    Controlled Assessment Task
    It is a requirement of the specification that candidates complete a 30 hour design, make
    and evaluate task. Teachers are required to monitor and verify that the time limit is
    adhered to and that the contributions of individual candidates are recorded accurately and
    that plagiarism does not take place.

    Candidates will not gain additional credit by exceeding the time limit.

    The task can be carried out in the normal classroom/workshop environment.

    Candidates are allowed supervised access to resources that may include information
    gathered outside the 30 hours of controlled assessment time.

    Candidates may gather research/inspirational material prior to or during the assessment
    period and this can be referred to during the task but this material is not to be included in
    the material to be assessed. Graphical work which has been prepared in advance by
    the candidate as part of an ongoing workbook or research, cannot be included as
    part of the material assessed for the control assessment task.

    Candidates may collaborate/confer with others in relation to the task but all assessed
    material must be the candidates' work only.

    The supervising teacher can give candidates limited guidance during the task in order to
    clarify what is to be done and to ensure that safe working practices are adhered to.

    All graphical and written work entered for this controlled assessment must be submitted on
    the pre-printed pages which are available for download from the WJEC website. The task
    must not exceed the 14 A3 pages provided. Candidates are free to use ICT applications
    where they are appropriate.

    It is the responsibility of the centre to ensure the reliability and authenticity of all work
    presented for this controlled assessment. Teachers and students will be required to sign
    a declaration that all work presented is the work of the candidate alone. Failure to
    authenticate the work may result in grades being delayed or refused.


        Further details of the assessment process, including the
        assessment criteria, can be found in Section 5 of the
        Specification for Design and Technology.
