1 Cambridge for Exams Officers This glossary gives a simple explanation for the terminology we use in our syllabi and administrative communications that may be unfamiliar or mean something different in the United States. It is a live document that we update regularly. If you think there are any words that should be added to the glossary, please let us know by ing To find out more about our regulations for conducting Cambridge examinations refer to the Cambridge Handbook for Centres. For information on our administrative procedures read the Cambridge Administrative Guide for Centres. Both documents are available from our website at: A Access arrangements Advanced Level (A Level) Advanced Subsidiary (AS) Assessment Assessment criteria Assessment objectives (AOs) Attendance register Known as accommodations for learning disabled students in the U.S. Arrangements to allow students with substantial and long-term disabilities access to the Cambridge exams. Applications must be made before the examination takes place. A national qualification usually taken between ages 16 and 18 in England. The A level is divided into two sections: the AS (usually taken in the first year of a two year program) and the A2 (the second year). The full A Level is an aggregation of the AS and A2 sections. Grades are certificated for AS and A Level but not for A2. See also: Qualification The first half of an A Level examination. An AS is a qualification in its own right. It is a national qualification usually taken between ages 16 and 18 in England. AS results may be used to contribute to A Level. The method used to evaluate a student s performance, for example, written examination or coursework. Known as rubrics in the U.S. The criteria that students must meet to achieve a given mark or grade on an examination or part of an examination. We publish assessment criteria in all syllabi with center-scored components. A set of statements in a syllabus that describe the focus of assessment.
