Topics covered include: problem solving, programming, logical thinking, searching, creating content, digital literacy, online safety and using IT beyond school. Download a content list.

All of the tasks are linked to the Progression Framework for Computing. This framework breaks down the curriculum into individual statements with "what to look for" guidance to help teachers make reliable judgements about children's learning. 

Using Switched on Computing? We have created a Switched on Computing and Computing Assessment Tasks mapping grid to help teachers to decide which assessment task to use alongside each unit of teaching. 

"We have found that these tasks help teachers to gauge where children are in their learning.  For us, they will be an invaluable addition to our computing toolkit and will help to develop and extend our computing teaching."
