All activities that take place ‘offsite’ must be recorded, even if you could show them live on the day of moderation, they do still need to be filmed.
While some activities are harder than others to film this should not be considered a reason to not film them. An activity that requires video evidence must be filmed and that evidence recorded. If you cannot film it and it is on the offsite list then your centre cannot do that activity.
Learners being filmed need to be very clearly identified.
When filming the activity you must film all of the skills required by the criteria for that sport. If filmed evidence does not contain all the criteria for that sport then the marks of your candidates may be scaled.
It is important that you review the filmed evidence and are confident that it supports the marks awarded – there is no point in teachers giving marks based on the level of performance they know a candidate is capable of, but not shown in the filming, as the moderator will not see evidence to support the marks.
A full list of the activities that are considered offsite and require to be filmed can be found in Appendix B of the guide to NEA:
On site activities
All activities that are considered on site do not have to be filmed, however activities on the day of moderation must be filmed.
This means that any performance seen by the moderator on the day of moderation must be filmed by the centre.
This filmed evidence must be sent to OCR within 10 working days of the moderation day and will be
used (alongside film of any offsite activities) if a review of moderation is later requested.
The full guidance about this is contained in sections 3b.6 of the Guide to NEA.
