This section contains information related to ongoing assessment of Junior Cycle Engineering.
A dual approach to assessment, involving classroom-based assessment across the three years and a final externally-assessed, state-certified examination can enable the appropriate balance between preparing students for examinations and also facilitating creative thinking, engaged learning and better outcomes for students. This approach will recognise and value the different types of learning that take place in schools and will allow for a more rounded assessment of the educational achievements of each young person.
You will find the Guidelines for the Classroom-Based Assessments in Engineering in the Key Documents section.
This resource has being designed as a support for Engineering teachers as their students engage with Classroom-Based Assessment 2: Research and Development. Note: It is recommended that the resource is viewed in conjunction with the Guidelines for Classroom-Based Assessment for Engineering. This can be accessed here. Teachers should watch the 'CBA 2 Research and Development Video' prior to engaging with the complimenting PDF documents.
Below you will find a number of supports that you may find useful as you engage in the Subject Learning and Assessment Review meeting process.
