WE WILL GOOVER THEASSESSMENT • Have your small infoTASK 1 booklets available and make notes as necessary
WHAT IS • Have you collected enoughNEXT?PLANNING data? • How are you going to present the data? • How are you going to answer the written questions?
COLLECTION • Check everyone in theOF DATA group has a copy of the results for both St Leonard’s and Muriwai on a planning sheet. • You can also collect any secondary data you want ie aerial photos, photos , climate data.
MARKING • You must have been seen collecting dataCRITERIA(IN SMALL • Data tables are produced for both beaches. (hand in yourBOOKS) Muriwai books and data collection sheets as evidence) • For Merit these must be complete and accurate
• The planning and collection of data can be done as a group so you can work together on this. Everyone must have a copy however.• From this point on all work is individual.
• You need to think about 3 different ways you can present this data.PRESENTATIONOF DATA Ideas are: • Graphs (each type of graph is one presentation method) • Diagrams (ie how the process happens) • Profiles • Wind roses • Sketch maps and field sketches • Aerial photos and maps • Photos that are annotated
CHECK YOU • Axes labelled • Title appropriateKNOW THE • North point for maps andCONVENTIONS field sketchNEEDED: • Frame for maps and sketches • Scale where appropriate (can estimate) • Key, labels or annotations
MARKING • ACHIEVED: OneCRITERIA presentation method with conventions • MERIT: Three presentation methods with conventions • EXCELLENCE: Three presentation methods with conventions and used to good effect ie comparison.
FOR THESE TO • They must relate to bothCOUNT beaches • They should allow comparison to be seen • They must relate to research ie annotate maps / photos to link to research
WHEN TO DO • ONE of your presentationsTHESE must be done in the assessment for authenticity purposes • The others may be done at home and glued into the correct section of the booklet.
ANALYSIS • Look at your dataQUESTION 1 -WHAT presentation. What does this tell you? What are the trends? Describe these using specific information. • Remember it is about the DIFFERENCES of the two beaches. Say what these differences are.
• Use your notes done in class toANALYSIS – help you here. This should explainQUESTION 2 previous question occur. WHY the trends you noted in the- WHY • Again remember it is about the DIFFERENCES of the two beaches • Use ONLY the space you are given for your answers. No extra sheets. You may want to prepare for this first and plan it out.
FINDINGS • These are simple statements only – you do not need a lot of writing. • Go back to the original research questions and write about 2-3 sentences on each of them that answers them succinctly.
HOLISTIC • Task 1 is marked holistically –MARKING that is you get the average of all the parts. • However, you MUST achieve each part. • Note that for data collection you must hand in your raw data sheets and Muriwai booklets.
WHAT TO • All the correct materials like a ruler, are protractor etc for presentation you pencil,BRING doing • Your completed field booklet (if not already in) • Your data collection sheets • Any photos, maps etc you want to include • Any presentations done at home – remember ONE must be done in the assessment that answers the Research Question. • Your Muriwai class booklet • Check you have the rubric.
IN GENERAL: • This assessment is not hard if you PREPARE for it before hand. • Always use the rubric to guide you as to what must be done. • Give it your best shot. Remember there is NO reassessment of this and you will only be allowed to resubmit if a border line case. This is not your choice but the markers.
• It must be completed at school. The booklet stays with your teacher.• You have next week to complete this in. If you need an extra study period then it is up to you to arrange this.
TIME FRAME • Up to 4 PERIODS TO DO THE RESEARCH PROJECT/ PART 2 • 1 week more of Theory in Green books • 1 LESSON Background to PART 3 • Up to 3 LESSONS TO WRITE UP PART 3. (Week 10)
TODAY • Check you have enough data • Check you have a copy of the data collected at both beaches on a sheet • Work out your presentation methods and what to do at home • Check you understand enough about the analysis to ask for assistance if need be. • Start on your original presentation.
EVALUATION(HALF PAGE EACH)• A. Think about the findings you obtained from your research. Were these what you expected? How useful do you think these results were? To what extent did they allow you to make valid conclusions?• B. Evaluate the research process. You may wish to consider when you do these things whether your research methods and approaches allowed you to collect sufficient, valid data and whether your processing and/or presenting was accurate, detailed and/or appropriate for your purposes. Discuss both the strengths and weaknesses.
• C. What are the alternative methods you could have taken to research this issue? (collecting, analysing and presenting). What would the effects of this have been on the resulting findings?
EVALUATION• Achieved - Evaluate the research process or findings• Merit – Evaluate the research process and findings• Excellence – Critically evaluate the research process and findings
EVALUATION(CONT)• Divide your evaluation up into findings and the process.• Critically evaluate means to examine alternative methods or approaches to research and discuss the implications of such alternatives
FINDINGS• Were they what you expected? Why or why not?• What let you down? Were the conditions typical when you collected your information?
THERESEARCHPROCESS• What let you down in terms of the following:• The field equipment• Amount of data collected• Methods of collecting data• Timing of data collection• The group collecting it – were all groups the same?• Processing techniques.
ALTERNATIVEMETHODS• If you had no budget or time constraints how could you have improved your research?• What other methods could you have included?• What would the implications of using these alternative methods have been?
WRITE UP• You will be given 2 periods to write this up. Aim to do IGI’s one period and the evaluation the next.• If you run out of time you may use 1 other period including a study or lunchtime
WRITE UP(CONT)• You may only use the space provided – we are looking for quality not quantity!!• You may NOT bring any other material to this section.• The definitions of the GCs will be available on a handout sheet.
FINALLY!• The aim is to prepare yourself for this assessment – you only get 1 try at this so give it your best shot!! Work out what you are going to do at home before the assessment.• GOOD LUCK!!!
