GCE Art and Design: changes to assessment
We have produced a document to help you understand the assessment procedures for the new AS and A level Art and Design qualifications.
In summary, centres should take careful note of the following:
- AS and A level are now completely separate qualifications.
- AS marks no longer contribute to A level attainment.
Determining the level of students' attainment in both qualifications is achieved by locating their performance within a scale of performance levels on the new performance calculators.
Marks attributed using the performance grid taxonomies and hyperlinks to visual exemplars can then be transferred to the assessment grids.
