How to assess for extra time - test areas and procedures. Do you have questions about the different ‘areas’ of evidence for 25% extra time? Webinar Recording. (ETWEBINAR)

2 hours - £20

​This webinar recording is for anyone who has questions about assessing for extra time, particularly the new requirement to present below and low average scores in two different ‘areas’ of processing.

The content of the webinar is the same as the seminar we offered as part of our conference, so any delegates who attended our full day conference and attended that seminar will have covered it already. They are still welcome to book if they would appreciate the Q&A focussed on this area. Delegates will also receive copy of our ‘Test Information’ document including information about which area each test/subtest falls into.

Lia Castiglione and Caroline Read talk through the 2021/22 JCQ requirements for a candidate with learning difficulties to qualify for 25% extra time. Assessors are now required to present below and low average scores in two different ‘areas’ of processing.

We received so many queries about which tests can be combined that we offered the content of a seminar we recorded for our conference more widely. Lia and Caroline cover practically every test and subtest available to assess for extra time and where each test/subtest fits in terms of the JCQ ‘areas’.

There is a recorded Q&A at the end of the presentation, and delegates will receive the following resources:

  • A copy of the presentation slides
  • A document detailing tests measuring different areas of speed of working, including which area of processing they cover for recording in Form 8 Part 2
  • A copy of our ‘Test Information’ document (usually £12) detailing over 40 of the tests recommended for use in GCSE Access Arrangements, updated to show which ‘area’ each test/subtest fits into when applying for extra time.

The course tutors are Caroline Read and Lia Castiglione.
