PART 2 – PRESENTATION
After data collection
WHAT IS NEXT?
Have you collected enough data?
How are you going to present the data?
How are you going to answer the written
TASK 3: COLLECTION OF DATA
Check everyone in the 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.
TASK 3: Marking Criteria
You must have been seen collecting data
Data tables are produced for both beaches.
(hand in your Muriwai books and data
collection sheets as evidence)
For Achieved these must be complete and
From this point on all work is
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.
TASK 4: PRESENTATION OF
You need to think about 3 different ways you
can present this data.
Graphs (each type of graph is one presentation
Wave length/height diagrams (ie how the
Sketch maps and field sketches
Aerial photos and maps
Photos that are annotated
Check you know the
conventions needed for each
Common conventions required are:
North point for maps and field sketch
Frame for maps and sketches
Scale where appropriate (can estimate)
Key, labels or annotations
Comparison is shown between 2 beaches
Bars are shaded
For these presentations to
Each presentation must relate to both
They should allow comparison to be seen
They must relate to research ie annotate
maps / photos to link to research
TASK 4: Marking Criteria
ACHIEVED: Two presentation methods with conventions
MERIT: Three presentation methods with conventions
and used to good effect i.e. show comparison
WHEN TO DO THESE
ONE of your presentations must be done in
class in the assessment booklet for
The others may be done at home and glued
into the correct section of the booklet.
TASK 5: ANALYSIS PART 1 -
Look at your data 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. State what these differences
are and calculate the scale of these. (e.g. this
means the velocity of LSD is 2 times faster at
Muriwai than at St Leonards)
TASK 5: ANALYSIS PART 2 -WHY
Use your notes in your 3.1 book to help you here. This should
explain WHY the trends you noted in the previous question
Again remember it is about the DIFFERENCES of the two
You also must state the SIGNIFICANCE OF FACTORS that
have caused these differences between the 2 beaches. E.g.
Which factor was MOST important
GEOGRAPHIC CONCEPTS (e.g. interaction, process,
location) and TERMINOLOGY should be integrated and
related to your research questions throughout your answer
Use ONLY the space you are given for your answers. No
extra sheets. You may want to prepare for this first and plan it
TASK 5: Marking Criteria
2 differences between beaches are described using field data
Analysis of data is completed that helps to answer research
questions (gives a valid reason why TWO of the differences
in the 2 beaches occurred)
Several (3 or more) differences between the beaches are
described in detail using a range of specific field data
Analysis of data allows valid conclusions to be reached.
SEVERAL reasons for the differences in the beaches are
suggested. Each reason is SUPPORTED BY APPROPRIATE
Geographic concepts and terminology should be included
TASK 5: Marking Criteria
Several (3 or more) differences between the beaches
are described in detail using a range of specific field
data (as for MERIT)
A critical analysis is completed that allows valid
conclusions to be reached. This includes DETAILED
REASONS for the differences in the 2 beaches and
evaluates the SIGNIFICANCE OF NATURAL FACTORS
or COMPONENTS in causing these differences.
Geographic concepts and terminology should be
integrated throughout your answer
TASK 6: PROVIDING CONCLUSION(S)
These are simple statements only – you do not need
a lot of writing. This is a summary only, no new
information is to be introduced here
Go back to the original research questions and write
about 2-3 sentences on each of them that answers
What were the differences and why?
TASK 6: Marking Criteria
ACHIEVED: A valid conclusion is given that relates to
the research questions
MERIT: A RANGE of conclusions are given that
are accurate and valid. Each conclusion
is supported by an appropriate piece of
TASK 7: EVALUATION
Evaluate the research process you undertook.
To what extent did you research methods and
approaches allow you to collect sufficient and
valid data to answer your research aims
What were the strengths and weaknesses of
your methods used?
Evaluating the research process
Think about what let you down in terms of the
The field equipment
Amount of data collected
Methods of collecting data
Timing of data collection
The group collecting it – were all groups the
DON’T FORGET TO LINK EACH STRENGTH OR
WEAKNESS TO THE VALIDITY OF YOUR DATA
Evaluating your research
How did the strengths or weaknesses you
have identified in the research process impact
on the validity of your findings or conclusions?
What let you down? Were the conditions
typical when you collected your information?
TASK 7: EVALUATION cont.
Critically evaluate the research process by
suggesting alternative methods you could
have used to undertake the research and the
implication this would have had on your
If you had no budget or time constraints how
could you have improved your research?
What other methods could you have
What would the implications of using these
alternative methods have been? How might
this have changed what you found out?
TASK 7: Marking Criteria
ACHIEVED: Analyses strengths AND/OR
weaknesses and how this may have
affected the validity of the findings
MERIT: Analyses, in detail, the strengths and/or
weaknesses of the research process
and analyses in detail the impacts on
the validity of findings. Includes
explanation about how specific
strengths/weaknesses impact on
specific findings and reasons for this
EXCELLENCE: As above for Merit criteria AND
discusses alternative research
methods and their possible implications
You will have up to 3 LESSONS to complete
the rest of this internal booklet during Week
This means Tasks 1-7 will be completed
before the school holidays
Last pieces of advice
This assessment is not hard if you PREPARE for it
Always use the rubric to guide you as to what must be
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.
You may only use the space provided – we are looking
for quality not quantity!!
