Other Work Samples for:

Morgan has demonstrated a limited level of competence in developing a scientific investigation. Knowledge of prior learning has been applied using a given strategy in a structured situation. Pictures have been used to illustrate a flow diagram but there is a lack of written information and detail. The identification of procedural steps in the flow chart is unclear. Morgan has selected appropriate equipment but has not recorded observations or findings in written form. There is no comparison to show fair testing and no demonstration of cause and effect. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at grade D standard at the end of Stage 3.

Grade D

The student has a basic knowledge and understanding of the content and has achieved a limited 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 Made Environment
    Students recognise that built environments are systems created to meet the needs and requirements of people and communities.They identify techniques used to engage audiences and convey meaning when creating information products. Students explain how production processes have changed over time and model systems used to manufacture products and provide services.
