Other Work Samples for:

Jamie has demonstrated sound knowledge and understanding of the content and structure of an information report. The report has been adequately planned and information has been appropriately grouped. The sentence structure is simple but present tense has been consistently used. Technical language has been included, but there is some disagreement of subject and pronoun. An adequate range of strategies has been used to spell familiar words but there is very little punctuation and the report could be better structured in paragraphs. To progress further, Jamie could include more detailed descriptions and work on developing a consistent slope in handwriting. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at grade C standard midway through Stage 1.
