Free GCSE Assessment Objective Posters

By The Arty Teacher - September 21, 2019

I’m delighted to show you these ‘GCSE Assessment Objective Posters’ made by art teacher Miranda Pennington.  You can find Miranda on Twitter @mirapennington  and also her school twitter account @strichardsart where there is lots of excellent work to be viewed.

You can save these directly from this page; simply right-click and save.  These make excellent posters for the wall or why not put 4 on a page and ask students to stick them in the front of their sketchbook?

Teaching your students about the assessment objectives takes time but is really good practice.  It allows students to understand why they are completing certain tasks and the more they understand them, the more they are likely to become independent learners.

If you display the posters on your wall you can easily use them to question students.  Initially, you can point out what assessment objective they are working on in that lesson.  As they become more familiar with the AO’s, you can ask them which assessment objective they think they are working on at that moment.

Understanding the assessment objectives is also useful for those students who just want to do their own thing.  The maverick in the class!  If they understand from the beginning that they have to fulfill the assessment objectives it can make difficult conversations easier.

You can use these GCSE Assessment Objective Posters to demonstrate how some tasks help fulfill more than one assessment objective.  For example, they may be drawing (AO3) but trying out a variety of different media (AO2).
