What do we know? Added Value The performance will have three sections Planning and preparing Planning and making appropriate preparations for the performance Performing Selecting, applying and combining skills making appropriate decisions and adaptations following relevant rules, regulations, etiquette Evaluating Evaluate the effectiveness of the overall personal performance, including strengths and weakness A performance being used by a candidate that is not on the course can be used for the performance in the course assessment as long as the teacher in the centre is responsible for the assessment decision. To enable this, the candidate needs to provide the teacher with valid evidence of the performance eg a video recording with annotated notes from a coach. Emphasis though on the teacher issuing the mark. 10 40 10
What do we now know? Factors Impacting on Performance SQA have outlined details of mandatory skills knowledge and understanding for this unit. Factors impacting on performance should come from - mental, emotional, social and physical. Further guidance is currently being developed by the SQA on Emotional and Social. The two factors must come from different areas of MESP. Templates issued for gathering evidence on the Factors Impacting on Performance. These have a nab style layout. Pass/ Fail: Internally assessed, externally verified.
What do we know? Portfolio for National 5 The portfolio will carry 40 marks In the portfolio, learners will : Demonstrate their understanding of a range of factors impacting on performance Apply this understanding to identify and justify a performance development priority Plan, develop and implement approaches to personal development Provide evidence of this process using early, middle and late reference points Provide evidence of adaptations / modifications to the development process Show evidence of the results achieved Reflect on the development process Apply knowledge and understanding to plan future development needs Portfolio can be exemplified from the added value performance. Portfolio structure from SQA must be followed at this point in time – there is no time frame for how long that will be.
