have published a series of topic assessments for their KS3 syllabus, under the Open Government License v3.0
. However, marking tests by hand is way
below your pay grade, so we have volunteered to do it all for you!
Oak National Academy
uses the same materials, just in a slightly different order. You can use these topic assessments just as well with the Oak materials as you can with TC.
As far as possible we have transferred questions verbatim from the Teach Computing documents. In some places it was necessary to adapt them slightly to fit the automarked format. All the KS3 assessments have been transferred: two topics (Programming essentials in Scratch – part I and Modelling data – Spreadsheets) do not have published assessments, which is why they are missing below.
Towards the end of each year, use these to spot the weaker topics that need revisiting. 20 questions per attempt is adequate for this. These 3 quizzes are not suitable for summative assessment; do that at the topic level.
Year 9 Tasks
Some of the Y9 assessments are presented by Teach Computing as 'tasks'. We have separated these into individual assessment mini-quizzes with 2-6 questions each.
In addition to the Teach Computing authors, many of the questions below were adapted for Yacapaca by Shiulee Begum of Icknield High School and Aimee-Louise Hooke of Queen Katharine Academy.
