A Complete guide for conducting IGCSE ICT 0417 Practical Tests
- A guide for ICT Exam Supervisors for conducting ICT practical tests
- Includes guidance for all those involved in the process.
Hi ICT teachers, I have been teaching ICT for quite a number of years. I have noticed that conducting ICT practical tests or mock examinations can sometimes get really stressful. This is merely because these practical tests involve so many stakeholders, i.e. the school’s IT department, CIE Coordinator / Exam Officer, Facilities department and the school’s Senior Leadership Team.
Practical tests need to be conducted with zero errors. Students should be able to get complete access to software, hardware and printing facilities during the exam. Sometimes, it gets difficult to explain these requirements to all those involved in the practical tests. To come up with a complete solution, I have created a complete guide for conducting ICT practical tests.
These mainly include:
Preparation for the IGCSE ICT Practical tests 0417/02/03
 INSTRUCTIONS FOR CENTRE’S EXAM SUPERVISOR
 INSTRUCTIONS FOR CENTRE’S EXAM OFFICER
 INSTRUCTIONS FOR CENTRE’S IT DEPARTMENT
 INSTRUCTIONS FOR INVIGILATORS / STUDENTS
I have highlighted important points in bold and have explained them in complete detail in eight, A4 sized pages. I have cited my sources of information for this guide. I am sure you will find this document very useful for conducting ICT practical tests in your school. I am charging a very nominal price for all the hard-work and research input in this document. You can edit or print this guide and distribute it to relevant departments, so that everyone involved knows exactly what they are supposed to do prior, during and after the practical tests. All the best! Zee.
