GCSE criteria for Design and Technology 2007
This set of subject criteria were produced in 2007 by the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority for Awarding Bodies to produce subject specifications for use in 2009 GCSE Design and Technology. GCSE specifications had to meet these criteria in order to be accredited.
The GCSE criteria explain the general aims of studying a particular subject at GCSE and outline the essential knowledge skills and understanding required, starting from the Key Stage Four National Curriculum current at the time. They also stipulate the structure of GCSEs and their assessment and grading, in that assessment objectives and grade descriptors are included.
