Other Work Samples for:

Taylor has demonstrated a basic knowledge and understanding of the content, and a limited competence in some of the processes and skills of conducting scientific investigations. A prediction is made, but with no explanation. The diagram is not labelled and does not clearly show the investigation or the result as there is not a clear distinction between the cars or the distance travelled. Taylor has written a simple statement outlining the results of the investigation. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at grade D standard.

Foundation Statement strands

The following strands are covered in this activity:

  • Investigating Scientifically
    Students conduct guided investigations by following a series of steps that include questioning, making and testing predictions, collecting and recording data, observing patterns and suggesting possible explanations. They select and safely use a range of equipment, computer-based technology and other resources to investigate and explore.
  • Designing and Making
    Students follow a guided design process to create products, including information products, services and built environments. They draw and model design ideas using accepted methods and practices. They select and safely use a range of equipment, computer-based technology and other resources when designing and making.
  • The Made Environment
    Students identify the difference between natural and built environments and model built environments designed to suit the needs of users. They communicate messages using a variety of media and technologies. Students describe and apply production processes using a range of materials and techniques to grow, make or process products.
