Dalriada had the honour of being one of four schools, selected by CCEA, who were asked to share good practice.
The Speaking and Listening unit of the GCSE English Language course is worth 20% of the overall exam and to fulfil the criteria pupils must perform a variety of oral tasks, both individually and as part of a group. To assist in teacher training and exam standardisation, CCEA asked Dalriada pupils to complete several tasks, whilst being recorded. This DVD will eventually be distributed to all exam centres to enable effective marking.
Our pupils certainly rose to the occasion, with the moderator (Mr S Lambe) stating that he can now show ‘clearly what an A* performance looks like’.
It was an interesting experience for the pupils and the English Department were very proud of all those who participated.
