Few will mourn the passing of CA in GCSE history

So the final nail is hammered into the coffin of Controlled Assessment. That will free up much more time for valuable teaching and learning and perhaps some genuine student investigations. It was interesting to see the DFE’s proposals for the 2015 GCSE containing reference to a more open-ended student enquiry but they fall short of awarding it any status within the assessment framework. At least it is acknowledging its importance. I’m now going to sit down and plan an SHP and a MW course and see how easily they fit the new proposed GCSE Framework
