Understanding the standard
We have produced three performance calculators:
- A level Practical Performance Calculator for assessing all A level practical work and written annotation
- A level Personal Study Performance Calculator for assessing the A level personal study
Each performance calculator contains a taxonomy to help you understand the characteristics of work at each performance level in the relevant
qualification. You will also find hyperlinks to visual exemplars so that
you can see marked examples of real student work.
We have created a bank of marked visual exemplars to help you understand the standard of the A level Art and Design qualification, and how to apply the assessment grid to your students' work.
