Other Work Samples for:

Nicky has demonstrated a basic understanding of how to plan and conduct an investigation. A procedure has been provided but it is unclear. The recorded observations are limited and the ranking of each filter's capacity does not match the observations. The response would be strengthened by a detailed explanation of each filter's capacity. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at grade D standard at the end of Stage 3.
