## Pre-exam aural check Level 1 Functional Maths

Submitted by Maggie Harnew on Sat, 2016-06-25 17:40

#### Level: L1

This aural check was used to assess learners before they attended my intensive 1:1 support / revision sessions for the Level 1 Functional Maths exam. These were generally students that I had not met or taught before.

Normally, I spend several sessions getting to know a learner and his or her mathematical strengths and difficulties. However, time was short and precious at the end of the year so I devised this check that was delivered and marked by vocational staff or LSAs.
