New examination technology for marking long
answers on screen
The pilots, results and benefits for you and your candidates
Introduction
Pilots
We use technology only where we are certain that it:
• provides improvements
• does not adversely affect the quality of our
assessments and their evidence of candidates’
attainments.
However, in June 2009, we piloted new software
which was designed to enable our examiners to
mark longer answers on screen. Two subjects were
involved in this pilot: GCE Classical Civilisation and
GCSE History. Both subjects also piloted the use of
a new style answer book.
We take a great deal of care to ensure that our
developments are supported by rigorous research and
deliver what you and your candidates want and need.
This update tells you all that you need to know about
the marking of long answers on screen and how our
work in this area may affect you and your candidates
in June 2010.
Background
In June 2009, our examiners marked 2.6 million
scripts on screen. We have generally restricted our
use of scanned electronic images to the assessment
of short or structured answers. Until June 2009, we
did not ask our examiners to mark long answers, such
as essays, using new software technology.
2
The pilots were successful and demonstrated that
the new technology developed for AQA:
• can accommodate question choice
and the variable length of written responses
from candidates
• does not disadvantage candidates.
In November 2009, we are conducting further pilots
of the new numbering system and new style answer
books in GCSE English A Papers 1F and 1H. We will
look carefully at candidates’ experiences in these
examinations and ensure that any necessary
adjustments are made to our assessments in order
to support candidates.

Examining long answers
The pilots have highlighted the following benefits of
us using this new technology in examinations:
The new technology….
• supports greater accuracy of marking and quality
control, enabling us to:
• monitor the accuracy and consistency of our
examiners’ assessments throughout the whole
of the marking period, rather than at strategic
stages in the process
• give our examiners regular feedback on their
assessments, thereby leading to even more
accurate and consistent marking
• helps us to publish results on time
• enables us to collect candidates’ marks for
individual questions and to offer centres instant
Enhanced Results Analysis (ERA), providing
detailed analyses of both candidates’ and centres’
performance in examinations. (See Appendix A
for further information on ERA and how to make
use of this free service.)
• enables centres to access fully annotated scripts
(via the Access to Scripts service), so that teachers
can see how and where marks have been
allocated, and feed this knowledge and information
into their delivery of the specification
• enables us to process scripts more quickly and
efficiently as a result of a reduction in the number
of times that each script is posted. Traditionally,
scripts were sent between centre and examiner,
between examiner and senior examiner and between
the senior examiner and AQA. Now, centres send
scripts direct to our scanning bureau, who release
electronic images to examiners. This reduces further
the risk of scripts being delayed or going missing
• strengthens the standardising process by enabling
examiners to focus on marking a single question at
a time, applying the mark scheme to their allocation
of this question with even greater accuracy and
consistency, rather than digesting the full mark
scheme and applying it to whole scripts
• enables us to total marks awarded automatically,
thereby removing any potential for errors in addition
• helps us to ensure that important decisions about
grade boundaries are supported by the maximum
amount of statistical information available
• enables us to receive improved post examination
data analysis. For senior examiners this means that
they can see at a glance exactly how individual
questions have scored so that they can evaluate
how each question type has worked, where
candidates have had problems, vocabulary that
may have caused difficulty, etc.
How will our question papers change?
From June 2010, all of our question papers will:
• be typeset in Arial font, thereby improving
accessibility to all candidates
• require candidates to write in black ink or black
ball point pen. Blue pens are not acceptable.
This is to ensure that scanning is as good as it can
be, so that all examiners can access and reward
appropriately candidates’ answers.
For examinations with separate question papers
and answer books, there will be:
• a new, simplified, numbering system using
two-digits
• a new style of answer book with spaces for
candidates to write the two-digit question numbers.

The new numbering system is illustrated in the
specimen question paper for GCSE English provided
as Appendix B, and the new style of answer book is
exemplified in Appendix C, where a front cover and
answer page are provided for information.
Components / units that will work with the new,
simplified, numbering system and new style answer
book in June 2010 are confirmed in Appendix D.
Specimen papers, based on the June 2009
examinations, are being developed for all components
/ units given in Appendix D, and will be available for
download from the relevant AQA subject web pages
from the middle of January 2010. This will enable
you to see changes in action and to share them with
candidates in preparation for examinations in June
2010. To access these materials, click on the ‘Key
materials’ tab and select ‘Question Papers and Mark
Schemes’ (for AS) / ‘Specimen Question Papers and
Mark Schemes’ (for GCSE and A2).
A small number of legacy GCSE question papers, in
their last year of operation, will be exempt from
changes to question numbering and changes to the
style of answer book used. The components / units
with exemptions are confirmed in Appendix E.
A few subjects that currently use separate question
papers and separate answer books will become
combined question paper answer books in June 2010;
these are confirmed in Appendix F.
Whilst we are making improvements to the style of
our question papers, centres are reassured that the
questions themselves will not change as a result of
AQA using new technology. They will test the same
skills, knowledge and understanding.
The future
Components / units which are already using combined
question paper answer books will not, in the vast
majority of cases, change format. In general, they
are already marked on screen, and already enjoy the
benefits outlined previously. A small number of our
papers are unsuitable for marking using technology
and they will, therefore, continue to be marked by our
examiners in the traditional manner. Components /
units that will experience no changes to their format
in June 2010 are confirmed in Appendix G.
By 2012, we will be marking almost all examination
components / units on screen, meaning that around
seven million scripts will be marked by examiners
using technology. This move will help us to meet the
call to modernise examinations.

Next steps
We need you to explain the changes outlined in this
booklet to your:
• candidates
• Examinations Officers
• Examination Invigilators.
These stakeholders must be aware of the changes
to our assessment materials so that if any queries do
arise in advance of the examination, advice can be
given. Subject teams will be pleased to offer further
advice on the changes outlined.
Thank you for supporting these changes.

How can I better understand the changes
being made to those components / units
that will move to work with a combined
question paper answer book and which
are identified in Appendix F?
Specimen papers, based on the June 2009
examinations, are being developed for all components
/ units given in Appendix F, and will be available for
download from the relevant AQA subject web pages
from the middle of January 2010. This will enable
you to see changes in action and to share them with
candidates for examinations in June 2010. To access
these materials, click on the ‘Key materials’ tab and
select ‘Question Papers and Mark Schemes’.
What form will the new question
numbering system take?
The traditional numbering system has been replaced
by a two-digit system. Questions will start at 01 and
run consecutively throughout the question paper.

Why move to this two-digit numbering
system?
The simplified two-digit numbering system, which is
to be adopted in our examinations using separate
question papers and answer books, reflects advice
received from external organisations and expert
bodies such as:
• the British Association for Teachers of the Deaf
• Royal National Institute of Blind People
• the Plain English Campaign.
6
AQA draws on advice given from a wide range of
sources to ensure that our examination materials are
accessible to, and support, the full range of candidates.
This move away from the current sophisticated
numbering system also meets the call to modernise
examinations so that they support candidates’ ‘real life’
experiences of completing, for example, application
forms for driving licences, jobs and mortgages, where
similar numbering systems are used.
What will the new AQA long answer
books look like?
The new AQA long answer books are similar to those
used in subjects with traditional essay-based
questions, so the format will be familiar to most
candidates. See Appendix C for an example of the
new format long answer book. NB The instructions on
the front cover of the new AQA long answer books,
and the layout of the answer pages, is standard
across answer books with 8, 12 and 16 pages.

What are the benefits for candidates of
using this new long answer book?
What if a candidate runs out of space in
their answer book?
The new long answer book offers candidates greater
flexibility in the examination. Candidates:
• can answer questions in any order
• are able to add further material to an answer or to
review / rework what has been produced with
greater ease, thus avoiding the potential ‘loss’ of
information through confused additions to the
original answer
• are supported to produce answers that are
appropriate to the marks allocated but which are
not ‘constrained’ by the number of lines allocated to
an answer. So, for example, the size of a
candidate’s handwriting will not be an issue and
should not result in a large number of additional
pages being used in the examination.
Each candidate will be given one answer book at
the start of the examination (see Appendix D for
confirmation of the size of the answer book for your
component / unit). If candidates run out of space,
additional sheets will not be issued, instead the
Invigilator will give candidates a supplementary
(four-page) answer book in which to continue
their responses. Candidates must complete the
information required on the front of their
supplementary answer book.
You say that the new long answer book
will support candidates who wish to
return to an answer later in the
examination. What should a candidate do
in such circumstances?
Candidates should leave two lines between each of
their answers. If candidates wish to add more material
to an answer, they should not try to squeeze it into
these lines, extend it into the margin of the answer
book, or attach numerous additional sheets to their
answer book. Candidates should:
• go to the end of the last response that they have
written in the answer book
• leave at least two lines
• write again the number of the question they wish to
continue to answer
• write the additional material.
What if, under the stress of examination
conditions, candidates make a mistake
when working with this new question
numbering system and new long answer
book?
We have taken great care to adopt a very simple
numbering system and to design long answer books
that are easy to use. However, candidates will not be
penalised for completing the new long answer book
incorrectly. All responses will be seen by an examiner,
even if it is not possible to scan a candidate’s script
and / or identify immediately, because of issues
surrounding legibility, question(s) answered. It would
be most helpful, however, if candidates try their best
to follow the guidance given here and on the front of
the question papers and long answer books.
NB Access arrangements will continue to apply
for candidates with special needs. Those who have
permission to use a word processor should continue
to do so.

What advice can AQA offer in terms of good examination practice, both from previous
examinations and, more specifically, from the pilots that used the new question
numbering system and new long answer book?
Good examination practice is confirmed in AQA’s
Reports on the Examination. These Reports are
produced every year in support of each component /
unit and can be downloaded from e-AQA immediately
following the issue of results. Reports identify both
good practice and points for improvement in future
examination sessions.
The following guidelines are relevant to all candidates’
preparation, regardless of subject, level or
examination session.
1. Prepare thoroughly for the examination. This
applies not only to the material for study but also to
the materials to be used during the examination.
Candidates must write in black ink or black ball
point pen in all AQA examinations. Blue pens are
not acceptable.
2. Take time to consider each question and where
there are optional questions, read through each
one before choosing which to answer.
3. Take account of the number of marks allocated
to each question and write answers of an
appropriate length. Candidates may penalise
themselves for writing material that is not relevant to
the question set, or which is of a length that is not
commensurate to the number of marks allocated to
the question. Candidates should avoid wasting
valuable time by rewriting each question at the
beginning of their answer – this is not necessary,
even when separate answer books are used.
4. Structure answers by making an answer plan,
where appropriate.
5. Look back at the question set in order to ensure
that it has been answered directly. Examiners
cannot award marks for knowledge and
understanding of a topic if the specific question set
has not been addressed. Candidates can write
good answers but fail to achieve marks because
they have answered a pre-prepared question and
not the question on the examination paper.

Page 9
Examining long answers
6. Ensure that handwriting is legible. Although
candidates won’t be penalised for poor handwriting,
they might penalise themselves if examiners cannot
read what is written. If candidates fail to write a
question number clearly, the examination process
can be affected, with delays in marking the most
likely outcome. Therefore, candidates should be
Is it a 1 or 2?
Is it a 3 or 8?
encouraged to write the two-digit question number
carefully, and exactly as shown on the question
paper, at the start of each answer. The following
examples illustrate some of the difficulties that
examiners can experience in trying to decipher
handwriting that is not clear.
Is it a 6 or 8?
Is it a 5 or 6?
Legibility is an issue here – it isn’t clear which words have been crossed out.

What is Enhanced Results Analysis (ERA)?
ERA is a free online service. As our technology
enables us to collect question (item) mark data for
candidates, ERA means we can share this data with
teachers. The system provides:
• mark and grade data for candidates
• the tools to analyse the data, e.g. relative to your
results last year or against national results
• for GCE Computing and GCSE English, Maths, ICT
and Science, additional skills and topic analysis
which summarises the question data. This gives
The teachers who piloted Enhanced Results Analysis
said how helpful it was to them in preparing candidates
for future examinations. You too will be able to analyse
individual questions to identify strengths and
weaknesses in candidates’ performance. This will help
you in the revision for re-sits and in preparing teaching
plans for the following year so that you can see
improved results in the classroom.
How do you register to have access to ERA?
Step 1 Complete the online form at aqa.org.uk/era
Step 2 You will be sent log in details by your Examinations Office
Step 3 Log in by going to aqa.org.uk/era or type http://extranet.aqa.org.uk in your address bar. Now you
can start analysing results.
What can enhanced results analysis show you?
There are three ways you can look at the examination results for your centres:
1. Students’ results
Allows you to look at the performance of an individual candidate in your centre in all of the subjects they
have taken with us.
2. Marks analysis
Allows you to identify areas of your subject where your candidates are performing well and areas where
performance could be improved.
3. Grades overview
Allows you to see your school’s or college’s grades quickly and how these compare to previous years,
to the average for similar schools / colleges and to the AQA national average.
