BTEC Tech Award in Engineering - SMLW for Component 1 - Pass and Distinction grades
The sample marked learner work (SMLW) for Component 1 pass and distinction standards are now available.
You can access the sample marked learner work for Component 1 LA-A and LA-B pass and distinction standards from the internal assessment tab of the course materials section of the qualifiation page. Simply use this link:
The Authorised Assignment Briefs (AAB) used for generating this learner work are the same as the ones provided by Pearson with some slight amendments. These can be seen in the SMLW. You can access the original authorised assignment briefs from the same above link.
The learner work generated are exemplars of standard for Learning aim A and B at pass and distinction grades. We expect centres to use this resource to exemplify how to structure a response to a task. We also encourage centres to use this work to standardise their Assessment teams and demonstrate to learners the level of work expected in order to achieve the different targeted grades outcome.
The commentary in the SMLW documents are detailed and explains how learner achieved the specific grades.
Reading this SMLW alongside the ‘Essential Information for Assessment Decisions’ in the specification for Component 1 will be useful to determine what is expected from Merit grade.
There is additional support available:
Student book and teaching resources
We hope that this sample marked learner work will support you in the delivery and assessment of Component 1 for the BTEC Tech Award in Engineering.
