Pilot on GCSE resits.

Pilot on GCSE resits.

The pilot, developed by the Manchester College, is the fourth study funded by the Education Endowment Foundation and J.P. Morgan  

 

A new pilot study to find out if short tests and handwritten exercises can help college students pass their GCSE English resits has been announced by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) and J.P. Morgan.

A total of six colleges will take part in the trial of Assess for Success, a programme developed by the Manchester College, and in which 1,200 students will be involved. The project will be evaluated by the Behavioural Insights Team (BIT).

The Manchester College saw a large increase in the number of young people resitting their maths and English GCSE exam since compulsory resits became a funding condition for colleges in 2014. Because of this, the college’s English department developed the Assess for Success programme as a way of assessing their students’ current capabilities, as well as the areas they need to work on.
