Other Work Samples for:

Taylor has demonstrated adequate skills in designing and making, and sound knowledge of the topic. The poster contains some creative visual features and appropriate use of technical language but the diagram has not been labelled. The questions have been adequately addressed and there is evidence of information being summarised in the student’s own words with some misinformation included. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at grade C standard at the end of Stage 3.

Grade C

The student has a sound knowledge and understanding of the main areas of content and has achieved an adequate level of competence in the processes and skills.

Foundation Statement strands

The following strands are covered in this activity:

  • Investigating Scientifically
    Students independently develop questions for scientific investigation, conduct scientific investigations based on fair testing and collect, record and analyse the resulting data. They identify trends in data, evaluate findings and prepare possible explanations. Students use, select and evaluate equipment, computer-based technology and other resources to meet the requirements and constraints of investigations.
  • Designing and Making
    Students independently plan, implement and manage the design process and evaluate the results using design criteria. They consider the implications of design and production in relation to environmental, aesthetic, cultural, ethical, safety and functional factors. Students select, safely use and evaluate equipment, computer-based technology and other resources to meet the requirements and constraints of design tasks.
  • The Natural Environment
    Students identify, describe and evaluate interdependent relationships between living things and the environment within ecosystems. They identify and describe various sources, forms, uses, transfers and changes in forms of energy. Students explore how natural forces and human interaction cause changes to the Earth over time. They recognise that the Earth is the source of most materials, and resources must be managed for sustainability.
