Unit Introduction GCSE TV cwk unit 1314.docx 
Unit 2.3 – Introduction
This pack is broken down into 6 sections: Section 1: Introduction – Guide to course and marking, how to complete and orgainse everything Section 2: A list of the Class and Homework activities you should complete/have completed Section 3: Coursework (The Brief – what you have to do) Section 4: Coursework (Practical Processes – documents you should use) Section 5: Coursework (Individual Writing of the evaluation) Section 6: Self and Peer Evaluation This unit is identified by the exam board as
Unit 2.3
of your coursework folder:
Practical Production & Evaluation What makes it different to the other units?
1. It is a group production, not individual (maximum groups of 4 chosen by you in conjunction with your teacher) 2. It is worth 30% of your total GCSE (the other 2 coursework units are worth 30% combined together so this is the
most important unit
) 3. The practical component is marked with the writing component which is an EVALUATION (See mark breakdown) 4. It is marked out of 45 5. You will have less time to complete it (see the schedule) 6. You will be working with moving images, as opposed to still images
However, there are many similarities to previous units. They are:
1. You will complete a short period of teaching related to the unit first 2. You will be assessed on the completion of 1 practical production, 1 evaluation and 1 portfolio 3. You will work to a brief 4. You will be given clear guidelines for everything 5. Portfolios will have the same evidence criteria: research, planning, organisation The blog address is: http://everythingmediastudies.blogspot.com 
You will be assessed as usual through a positive marking system. In other words, everything you do that contributes positively to the project can gain you marks. If you are absent for any of the work, you need to understand that the group will continue without you. You will not be able to score marks if you are not there to complete the work. This applies to both holidays taken in term time and short term illness. The only concession to this is long term illness/serious personal circumstances: in both cases formal communication with parents is essential before any alternative arrangements can be made. It is essential that you act responsibly towards your group. Group production meetings, on location shooting sessions at the weekends, and editing sessions in the lunch hour and after school are all compulsory
if you are directed to undertake them
, and you will lose marks if you do not attend. If required, these will be explained in a letter home to your parents close to the start of the project and they will sign a form to indicate to us that they understand the level of commitment required and that they will ensure your attendance.

 Anything taken home as part of the group project must be returned at the time agreed, regardless of illness. This includes paperwork as well as equipment.
Individual assessment
Despite being a group project, you will be marked individually and there will still be some work that you will do on your own. For example, you will all complete some individual industry and genre research in the early stages. This will be used as a basis for your group planning meetings early in the project and for marking. You will all complete your own individual evaluation (with a maximum of 700-800 words) about the production. You may actually start this before the practical work is completed. You may be required to give a presentation as your evaluation rather than writing an essay. Remember that everything is assessed so complete all the stages and you will have everything you need at the end!
Group assessment
Providing evidence of what you have done is even more crucial than ever in this project, as for the practical component we have to mark you on your
individual contribution
to the finished piece. It is very likely that students will score very different marks for the production, despite being in the same group. This is because the
you follow is very significant - marks are not given just for the finished product, but for how you got there as well. Teacher observations, peer assessment and the portfolio will provide the evidence we need to make our judgements about your individual contributions to the group component
Self Assessment
You will be asked to complete a self assessment at the end of the project. However, you will also be asked to complete a group assessment as well, to help us assess you in relation to your colleagues. Group assessment tend to confirm what we already knew, and although we don't rely exclusively on them to assess members of the team, they do often throw up interesting insights into the group dynamics and the parts of the project that went on outside school, such as on location shoots. FINALLY: Keep all the work you complete in your folder. You will be given additional sheets as the unit progresses.
