Task & Exemplification Library
Our Task and Exemplification Library contains both CCEA Tasks and pupil exemplification in the cross-curricular skills of Communication, Using Mathematics and Using ICT.
Pupil exemplification may include:
- a piece of pupil work that has been assessed and assigned a level;
- a commentary, that provides the context for the sample of pupil work and the evidence for the assigned level; and
- where appropriate, the accompanying pupil activity.
We advise teachers to use the Task and Exemplification Library in the following ways. They may use:
- tasks with pupils to support the development and, if appropriate, the assessment of the Cross-Curricular Skills;
- pupil responses to tasks and samples of pupil work during internal standardisation activities within school; and
- samples of pupil work to model good practice and carry out peer assessment activities with pupils.
Using ICT Tasks
There are a range of optional CCEA Tasks that primary schools can use.
The tasks can help teachers plan for and carry out ICT work that contributes to the Using ICT curriculum requirements. Most of the tasks are generic, so they can be used more than once.
They cover a range of different types of ICT and are written for a range of different platforms, such as PCs, MacBooks, programmable devices and tablets. Each task clearly indicates which platform is suitable. Most of the tasks are suitable for a range of levels.
Teachers can also use the tasks for assessment. Teachers must make sure that their pupils have already acquired the skills they need to complete the task if using it for assessment.
The library also has samples of pupil work for most of the tasks and commentaries explaining how the pupil work illustrates the standards of the Levels of Progression.
Teachers do not have to log in for the Task Library but they do have to log in for the Exemplification Library to access pupils’ actual work.
