(includes coffee break) Item Level Data Item Level Data shows the breakdown of marks of a script by Theme for geography A. For centres, it is a data source that can be used to: evaluate their own performance
against specification norms assist candidates in improving individual performance. Walled Garden On the secure website (your exams officer will have a login) in the Walled Garden area, there are two buttons that give access to item level data: Item Level Summary (Candidates) Centre Performance in Context
Item Level Summary (Candidates) Use the drop down menu to select the series Item Level Summary (Candidates) For each unit a candidate has sat, the mark achieved on each item is given.
At any stage the data can be exported as a spread sheet or pdf document Item Level Summary (Candidates) By clicking on a candidate name, an individual report is given The report shows: Mark achieved by candidate Average mark achieved by centre
Average mark achieved for all candidates entered with WJEC Centre Performance in Context To see how your centre performed, relative to other centres with WJEC, the Centre Performance in Context should be selected: Centre Performance in Context
This gives (for each item) the mean, facility factor and attempt %, for all candidates as well as males and females separately. The white columns show the centre result, the grey columns all WJEC candidates' results. Using the mean mark Mean If all candidates perform well on a particular item, the mean score will be close to the
maximum mark. Conversely, if candidates as a whole perform poorly on the item there will be a large difference between the mean score and the maximum mark. A simple comparison of the mean marks will identify those items that contribute significantly to the overall performance of the candidates. Using the facility factor
For questions with different maximum marks, the facility factor should be used to compare performance. Facility factor expresses the mean mark as a percentage of the maximum mark It is a measure of the accessibility of the item. If the mean mark obtained by candidates is close to the maximum mark, the facility factor will be close to 100 per cent and the item would be considered to be very
accessible. Using Attempt % Attempt % In Geography A UNIT 2, where candidates have a choice of question, the statistics evidence candidate preferences / the teaching policy within centres. In UNIT 1, a lower figure for question 6 (the final question) would indicate candidates were short of time. Happily, at a national
scale, this does not seem to be a significant issue. Centre Performance in Context The guidance notes which can be downloaded give an explanation of the data analysis provided. Feedback on the summer series of exams
Available now Available from later in autumn WJEC is not providing face-to-face feedback on this summers GCSE Geography exams. However, centres are encouraged to: Use the Principal Examiners report
which is available on the WJEC website. Use the new, interactive materials being developed for the WJEC website Sample feedback (Geog A 2012) Feedback opens in a web browser Initial screen provides item level data for one paper. Tools (on right) allow interactive use on
whiteboard Drop down boxes explain the item level data for use in departmental training Facility factor may be represented as a graph. The shorter bars represent the more demanding questions 2 Toggle the
