The Computing curriculum has changed what is taught in schools, of all types and phases, but the means of assessment for those who have not yet reached National curriculum levels, the P Scales, have not been altered. There is a fundamental mismatch between the curriculum and the means of recognising
achievement and monitoring progress.
To address this, an ad hoc group of teachers, advisors and consultants have come together to revise the P Scales for Computing to bring them up to date and make them fit for purpose. Having created an initial draft these updated level descriptors need wider discussion and validation by as wide a group of
teachers, educators and stakeholders as possible. Please help, either by attending one of the free meetings we are working to arrange across the country or by commenting and contributing online at http://sencomputing.
