Open Awards | Effective Marking of Functional Skills English Entry Level Assessments

The aim of this training course is to support centre markers with the marking of Entry-Level English Assessment scripts. The training is designed to support the Mark Scheme content, and how this should be interpreted, by clarifying areas that may cause confusion. Also, it attempts to address common errors and misinterpretations, reflecting ‘real-life’ situations encountered by our Centre Markers.
