Nuffield Assessment in Science
The Nuffield-Chelsea Curriculum Trust organised the writing of the books in the Nuffield Assessment in Science series soon after the start of the GCSE qualification. At this time there was a growing requirement for more formal assessments of student progress by science teachers - most obviously in the internal assessments required by GCSE. As a result, the techniques of assessment and examinations that had been a part of the province of experts had increasingly become the business of every teacher.
Three books were published:
• Methods of assessment - dealing with written examinations
• Assessment of Practical Work for the GCSE
• Assessing Nuffield Co-ordinated Sciences - with particular reference to practical assessment.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
