In addition to the Marking Criteria table for each unit there is further guidance on assessment and marking in the Specification Handbooks.
In the Handbooks, how to apply the ‘best fit’ approach to marking is explained. Also, in Appendix B you will find a section, for each unit, called Assessment Guidance. This provides useful additional guidance on the requirements to satisfy each of the Marking Criteria per learning outcome. It can also be used when providing candidates with guidance on what is expected from them to satisfy the requirements of the Set Assignment.
OCR offer a full range of FREE CPD events – accessible and bookable from the webpage for each qualification. These provide the opportunity to ask questions about assessment and marking, and some are even dedicated to the process of assessment.
