8, If you have a problem with the mark that you receive, you will be able to question the assessment process before moderation but you may not question the mark awarded.
This is covered in Oxford Open Learning’s Internal Appeals Procedure.
It is considered to be an excellent way for students to demonstrate the skills and knowledge they have gained throughout a course and their ability to conduct independent research and write up their own project.
Completing the NEA will help a student gain valuable life and work skills and for our students it is done at home.
( We and AQA have various methods of checking for plagiarism and they are used rigorously.) 6, Your tutor may refuse to authenticate your NEA if you do not follow any of these rules.
In this case your work will be returned to you and AQA will be informed. 7, We will inform you when we have received your NEA and also of the mark you have been awarded.
Students are encouraged to use research resources such as textbooks, journals, TV, radio and the internet and importantly to learn how to attribute and reference them.
Currently the subjects which we offer with part assessment by NEA are; GCSE; English (AQA), this NEA is not written work, it is an oral test A LEVEL; English Language, English Literature and History (all AQA) Any entry for these subjects has to be made through Oxford Open Learning where you will be entered as an internal candidate by our Examination Officer, Jenny Booth ( [email protected] tel; 01865 798022).
However, the teacher cannot tell students exactly how to do the work or specifically what corrections to make – the point of coursework is for your son or daughter to work independently.
You can encourage your child to do well and you and the tutor can provide them with guidance and access to resource materials.
