A common issue are projects
being submitted with the incorrect attachments included.
A project submission (e.g.
GO-0000000001) needs to have:
1x Project Work
1x or more student
profile forms. This is based on the number of students entered on the
Any other accompanying documentation. These tend to
include Powerpoints, data files, photos, supplementary research, video, etc.
a project is missing a profile form, assess the project as best you can, mark
it for resubmission, give the applicable feedback including a request for a
profile form and send them to a link to the profile forms (https://crestawards.org/s/CREST_Student_profile_form.docx). Note: If the project has passed, let the student know.
If a project has multiple project work in it, mark the project for re-submission, outlining that each project
needs to be submitted separately. It is ok to have multiple profile forms, if
there were multiple students working on one project.
If someone submits without all the information, the
assessor should assess it as best they can, provide feedback and then ask them
Also don’t worry if the
students submit out of date profile forms. The content hasn’t changed, just the
logo. Just make a note of it in the feedback (so the teacher can get the new
forms). They don’t need to resubmit because of old documentation.
We have had quite a few projects pass recently
with incorrect attachments, so vigilance is key here!
