Ofqual Teacher Survey - Deadline 10th Nov

Ofqual are carrying out a survey of teachers to help inform their decisions around the review of internally marked components of GCSE and A levels; the impact of changes to their requirements around exam board training for teachers, and the effect of uncoupling AS and A levels on student motivation.  They are asking teachers to complete a ten minute online survey to share their thoughts on these areas.   The survey is anonymous, and the insight shared will be used to help shape their thinking around these important aspects of their work.  The survey asks about teacher experience of reviews of internal marking, A levels and exam board training for teachers, so you will need experience of at least one of these areas to take part.  You do not need experience of all three aspects and you do not need to complete all the questions if they are not relevant to your experience.  Thank you in advance for your time.   The survey will close on Thursday 10th November at 5pm.   You can access the survey here:  

Re: Recrystallisation solvent

Hello Anita and Dr Reddy, This group is for chemistry teachers, mainly in schools, to share best practice in teaching between each other. Therefore unfortunately this forum isn't used to answer student's questions about labs or research projects. There are other groups on MyRSC, including the University Student Group where you can pose such questions and get involved in answering them. With best wishes, Helen
