This set of exam-style questions were designed for the OCR J276 GCSE Computer Science qualification, but they focus on Computer Memory (ROM,RAM) and Storage - that makes the questions relevant to J275 and other GCSE Computer Science courses.
There are 4 questions on memory & storage and a mark scheme too, available in both .docx and .pdf formats.
There are more question packs to follow. Any feedback about these gratefully received.
The questions form part of the J276 MOOC a flipped-classroom resource for teaching GCSE Computer Science which also includes other free tools for assessment. More info about the J276 MOOC at http://courses.exa.foundation or in this blogpost I wrote here: https://teachcomputing.wordpress.com/2016/08/27/the-mooc-has-landed/
If you’ve signed up to use the J276 MOOC, you can upload student scores the to the gradebook along with all the student results from the computer assessed quizzes and it gives a very comprehensive profile for each student showing their learning progress and the areas where they need to improve their understanding.
