The Chartered Institute of Educational Assessors (CIEA) is a professional independent membership organisation set up to maintain and improve the quality of educational assessment. The CIEA aims to spread understanding of, and good practice in educational assessment. Its members include teachers, examiners and awarding bodies.
The CIEA is hosting a lecture by Cambridge Assessment's Group Director of Assessment Research and Development, Tim Oates CBE. He will provide a thought-provoking exploration of the new GCSE grading system with his lecture on New 9-1 GCSEs - has everything changed on the surface yet has nothing really changed underneath? and will explore the nature of the changes and their rationale. His presentation will also look at the key elements of the reform process and how it has achieved its original policy intentions laid down in 2010.
More information about the lecture and how to attend can be found on the CIEA website.
A principal researcher from our UK exam board OCR, Dr Frances Wilson, has written a helpful blog explaining the new 9-1 grading structure for reformed GCSEs. Visit the blog section of our website to read New grading structure for reformed GCSEs - how does it work?
