Bronze awardsTeachers and parents decide when students have completed Bronze tasks satisfactorily. Keep a record of the activities completed by each student using photocopies of the Bronze Record Card in the Young Investigators pack. Ask a second adult to review the work and countersign the form. Send the completed form, together with an award application form, to the BA, to receive your badges and certificates.
Silver and Gold awardsTeachers and parents should make the initial assessment of the project work. A second person should then review the work. Talk to your BA Regional Officer or the YPP team to make arrangements for a second assessor. Where possible, this should be someone external e.g. a teacher from another school, someone from your local SETPOINT or your BA Regional Officer.
Assessment criteria The objectives and assessment criteria for Silver and Gold awards are outlined in the Young Investigators pack.
