Getting to Grips with Assessing Pupils' Progress (APP)
This pamphlet describes the process of Assessing Pupils’ Progress (APP): how judgements about a pupil’s attainment can with confidence be tied into the National Curriculum levels, tracked over time to assess their progress, and appropriate intervention made. APP uses national criteria which had been trialled in pilot schools before the launch. Though the DCSF has not made APP compulsory, all schools are being encouraged to adopt it as soon as is feasible and cease using other schemes of AfL.

An Evaluation of Teachers Trained Through Different Routes to Certification
This is a research report, commissioned by the Institution of Education Sciences in the United States (US). It compares the achievement of elementary (primary) school pupils in the same grade, at the same schools. For the purposes of this research, these pupils had been randomly assigned to teachers who chose to be trained through different routes to certification – broadly traditional certification (TC) and alternative certification (AC) education school routes. The evaluation found that stud

Introduction
This unit is the first in the MSXR209 series of five units that introduce the idea of modelling with mathematics. This unit centres on a mathematical model of how pollution levels in the Great Lakes of North America vary over a period of time. It demonstrates that, by keeping the model as simple as possible extremely complex systems can be understood and predicted.

3. The challenge of change
In this unit, aimed at teachers of Physical Education, we begin by looking at some of the common misconceptions relating to fitness and activity levels together with accepted definitions of these concepts. We consider how active young people should actually be, and discuss how PE teachers can ensure they are making an effective contribution to this area of public health.

5 Next steps
The idea of ‘family’ is very powerful in contemporary UK culture and policy. Family lives have been the subject of many anxieties both at the personal and policy levels. How do public debates relate to people’s everyday experiences of families? In this unit, you can explore the many attempts at defining ‘family’ and why these complex and contradictory meanings are important to us. We begin to unpick questions of power and inequality, to test our everyday assumptions about families, and

2.2 Analytical tools
There is an ongoing ‘revolution’ in the running of state schools and this is making the position of the school business manager both significant and necessary. Government thinking, together with profound changes in society generally, will affect every institution both in terms of pedagogy and the physical environment, particularly technology and levels of security employed. This unit will look at how you – an existing or aspiring business manager – can work effectively to support school

Geoengineering the climate
Geoengineering the climate: Science, Governance and Uncertainty: The Royal Society Study - John Shepherd (NOCS) The climate change we are experiencing now is caused by an increase in greenhouse gases due to human activities, including burning fossil fuels, agriculture and deforestation. There is now widespread belief that a global warming of greater than 2C above pre-industrial levels would be dangerous and should therefore be avoided. However, despite growing concerns over climate change, gl

    Hypoxia Zone: Modeling Stratified Waters
    Sampling of aquatic microorganisms reveals a surprising feature of many open water systems - stratification. Students can model the effects of reducing nutrient loads to surface waters on microbial populations and oxygen levels within the Mississippi River basin and Gulf of Mexico Hypoxia Zone. Planktonic and benthic microbes occupy distinct zones in stratified water columns. Explore how the benthic consumer populations respond to environmental cues such as changes in sunlight, wind effects, o
