A purely descriptive report and/or a long theoretical introduction must be avoided.<br />Planning Sheet<br />Before starting your report use this page to produce your proposal. This must be approved by your supervisor.<br />Fieldwork Question:<br />Part of the Syllabus this is linked to:<br />Hypothesis:<br />Primary Data:<br />Secondary Data:<br />Techniques to Analysis Data:<br />Data Presentation Methods:<br />(please use an additional page / sheet if needed – however it should use the same headings as above)<br />Supervisors Signature: ___________________________________<br />What to Include in Your Report<br />The next few pages give you some general advice on what to include for each section of your written report. Speak to your assigned supervisor for more advice with regards to technique based upon your chosen topic.<br />There is deliberately a large amount of white space for you to take notes and jot down any ideas.<br />Section A: Fieldwork Question and Geographic Context <br />The fieldwork question (the precise inquiry) guides the fieldwork investigation. It must be narrowly focused,<br />appropriate and stated as a question that can be answered through the collection of primary information in<br />the field. (Where appropriate, you can make a brief preliminary judgment or prediction answering the<br />fieldwork question. This prediction may be formulated as a hypothesis.)<br />You must also comment briefly on the geographic context, explaining why and where the fieldwork<br />investigation is to be carried out. This can include relevant spatial, physical, socio‑economic conditions and<br />other background information, concepts or characteristics. A map of the research area and/or the locations<br />used in the fieldwork investigation is essential to provide the necessary spatial element.<br />You must also state the area(s) of the syllabus to which the study relates, whether it is from the topic<br />or development columns within the core, the optional themes or HL extension. It can be drawn from a<br />combination of two or more topics or themes.<br />The suggested length of this section for work appropriate to criterion A is approximately 300 words.<br />Section B: Methods of Investigation<br />You must describe the method(s) used to collect information. The description may include sampling techniques, time, location and circumstances of information collection where relevant.<br />The method(s) used must be justified and must enable a sufficient quality and quantity of primary data to be produced to allow the fieldwork question to be investigated.<br />The suggested length of this section for work appropriate to criterion B is approximately 300 words.<br />Section C: Quality and treatment of information collected <br />Section D: Written analysis<br />You should treat and display the information collected using the most appropriate techniques.<br />These techniques must be the most effective way of representing the type of information collected and must be well used. The precise techniques employed will differ depending on the nature of the fieldwork question but may include statistical tests (including confidence limits), graphs, diagrams, maps, annotated photographs and images, matrices and field sketches.<br />In the written analysis, you must demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of the fieldwork investigation by interpreting and explaining the information they have collected in relation to the fieldwork question. This includes recognizing any trends and spatial patterns found in the information collected. Where appropriate, an attempt should be made to identify and explain any anomalies.<br />You must also refer to the geographic context, information collected and the ways in which the material has been treated and presented.<br />The treatment and display of material and the written analysis must be integrated within this section.<br />The suggested length for the work in the section related to criterion C and criterion D is 1,350 words.<br />Section E: Conclusion<br />You should summarize the findings of the fieldwork investigation. There should be a clear, concise statement answering the fieldwork question. It is acceptable for the conclusion to state that the findings do not match the your preliminary judgment or prediction.<br />The suggested length of this section for work appropriate to criterion E is approximately 200 words.<br />Section F:  Evaluation<br />You  should review their investigative methodology, including methods of collecting primary information. Within this, you should consider any factors that may have affected the validity of the data, including personal bias and unpredicted external circumstances such as the weather.<br />You should suggest specific and plausible ways in which the study might have been improved and could be extended in the future.<br />The suggested length of this section for work appropriate to criterion F is approximately 300 words.<br />G:  Formal Requirements<br />The fieldwork written report must meet the following five formal requirements of organization and presentation.<br />The work is within the 2,500 word limit.<br />Overall presentation is neat and well structured.<br />Pages are numbered.<br />References used for background information follow standard conventions. <br />All illustrative material is numbered, is fully integrated into the body of the report and is not relegated to an appendix.<br />Types of Information for Collection<br />Primary information<br />This information must come from the your  own observations and measurements collected in the field.<br />This “primary information” must form the basis of each investigation. Fieldwork must provide sufficient<br />information to enable adequate interpretation and analysis.<br />Fieldwork investigations may involve the collection of both qualitative and quantitative primary<br />information. The type of information collected should be determined by the aim and fieldwork question.<br />Quantitative information is collected through measurement and may be processed using statistical and<br />other techniques.<br />Qualitative information is collected though observation or subjective judgment and does not involve<br />measurement. Qualitative information may be processed or quantified where appropriate or it may be<br />presented through images or as text. (Students are advised to remember the word limit when presenting<br />qualitative information as text only.)<br />The nature of qualitative data should provide sufficient information for analysis and conclusion.<br />Secondary information<br />This research involves gathering information from sources that have already been compiled in written,<br />statistical or mapped forms. Secondary information may supplement primary information but must only<br />play a small part in the investigation.<br />All secondary information must be referenced, using a standard author–date system, such as the Harvard<br />system. This includes information from the internet, where references should include titles, URL addresses<br />and dates when sites were visited. All sources of secondary information must be referenced. Footnotes may<br />be used to reference material and, provided that these are brief, up to 15 words as noted below will not be<br />included in the word count.<br />Word Count Advice<br />Students should produce one written report of their investigation. The report must not exceed<br />2,500 words.<br />Word limit<br />The following are not included in the word count.<br />• Title page<br />• Acknowledgments<br />• Contents page<br />• Titles and subtitles<br />• References<br />• Footnotes—up to a maximum of 15 words each<br />• Map legends and/or keys<br />• Labels—of 10 words or less<br />• Tables—of statistical or numerical data, or categories, classes or group names<br />• Calculations<br />• Appendices—containing only raw data and/or calculations<br />All the main text is included in the word count, including the research question, analysis, conclusion and<br />evaluation, as well as all annotations over 10 words and any footnotes over 15 words.<br />Where work is over the limit, moderators are advised to stop reading and students are likely to lose marks<br />not only under criterion G, but possibly also under other criteria, such as E and F.<br />Internal Assessment Marking Criteria <br />In the printed version this is replaced by page 68- 72 from the syllabus.<br />

A purely descriptive report and/or a long theoretical introduction must be avoided.<br />Planning Sheet<br />Before starting your report use this page to produce your proposal. This must be approved by your supervisor.<br />Fieldwork Question:<br />Part of the Syllabus this is linked to:<br />Hypothesis:<br />Primary Data:<br />Secondary Data:<br />Techniques to Analysis Data:<br />Data Presentation Methods:<br />(please use an additional page / sheet if needed – however it should use the same headings as above)<br />Supervisors Signature: ___________________________________<br />What to Include in Your Report<br />The next few pages give you some general advice on what to include for each section of your written report. Speak to your assigned supervisor for more advice with regards to technique based upon your chosen topic.<br />There is deliberately a large amount of white space for you to take notes and jot down any ideas.<br />Section A: Fieldwork Question and Geographic Context <br />The fieldwork question (the precise inquiry) guides the fieldwork investigation. It must be narrowly focused,<br />appropriate and stated as a question that can be answered through the collection of primary information in<br />the field. (Where appropriate, you can make a brief preliminary judgment or prediction answering the<br />fieldwork question. This prediction may be formulated as a hypothesis.)<br />You must also comment briefly on the geographic context, explaining why and where the fieldwork<br />investigation is to be carried out. This can include relevant spatial, physical, socio‑economic conditions and<br />other background information, concepts or characteristics. A map of the research area and/or the locations<br />used in the fieldwork investigation is essential to provide the necessary spatial element.<br />You must also state the area(s) of the syllabus to which the study relates, whether it is from the topic<br />or development columns within the core, the optional themes or HL extension. It can be drawn from a<br />combination of two or more topics or themes.<br />The suggested length of this section for work appropriate to criterion A is approximately 300 words.<br />Section B: Methods of Investigation<br />You must describe the method(s) used to collect information. The description may include sampling techniques, time, location and circumstances of information collection where relevant.<br />The method(s) used must be justified and must enable a sufficient quality and quantity of primary data to be produced to allow the fieldwork question to be investigated.<br />The suggested length of this section for work appropriate to criterion B is approximately 300 words.<br />Section C: Quality and treatment of information collected <br />Section D: Written analysis<br />You should treat and display the information collected using the most appropriate techniques.<br />These techniques must be the most effective way of representing the type of information collected and must be well used. The precise techniques employed will differ depending on the nature of the fieldwork question but may include statistical tests (including confidence limits), graphs, diagrams, maps, annotated photographs and images, matrices and field sketches.<br />In the written analysis, you must demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of the fieldwork investigation by interpreting and explaining the information they have collected in relation to the fieldwork question. This includes recognizing any trends and spatial patterns found in the information collected. Where appropriate, an attempt should be made to identify and explain any anomalies.<br />You must also refer to the geographic context, information collected and the ways in which the material has been treated and presented.<br />The treatment and display of material and the written analysis must be integrated within this section.<br />The suggested length for the work in the section related to criterion C and criterion D is 1,350 words.<br />Section E: Conclusion<br />You should summarize the findings of the fieldwork investigation. There should be a clear, concise statement answering the fieldwork question. It is acceptable for the conclusion to state that the findings do not match the your preliminary judgment or prediction.<br />The suggested length of this section for work appropriate to criterion E is approximately 200 words.<br />Section F: Evaluation<br />You should review their investigative methodology, including methods of collecting primary information. Within this, you should consider any factors that may have affected the validity of the data, including personal bias and unpredicted external circumstances such as the weather.<br />You should suggest specific and plausible ways in which the study might have been improved and could be extended in the future.<br />The suggested length of this section for work appropriate to criterion F is approximately 300 words.<br />G: Formal Requirements<br />The fieldwork written report must meet the following five formal requirements of organization and presentation.<br />The work is within the 2,500 word limit.<br />Overall presentation is neat and well structured.<br />Pages are numbered.<br />References used for background information follow standard conventions. <br />All illustrative material is numbered, is fully integrated into the body of the report and is not relegated to an appendix.<br />Types of Information for Collection<br />Primary information<br />This information must come from the your own observations and measurements collected in the field.<br />This “primary information” must form the basis of each investigation. Fieldwork must provide sufficient<br />information to enable adequate interpretation and analysis.<br />Fieldwork investigations may involve the collection of both qualitative and quantitative primary<br />information. The type of information collected should be determined by the aim and fieldwork question.<br />Quantitative information is collected through measurement and may be processed using statistical and<br />other techniques.<br />Qualitative information is collected though observation or subjective judgment and does not involve<br />measurement. Qualitative information may be processed or quantified where appropriate or it may be<br />presented through images or as text. (Students are advised to remember the word limit when presenting<br />qualitative information as text only.)<br />The nature of qualitative data should provide sufficient information for analysis and conclusion.<br />Secondary information<br />This research involves gathering information from sources that have already been compiled in written,<br />statistical or mapped forms. Secondary information may supplement primary information but must only<br />play a small part in the investigation.<br />All secondary information must be referenced, using a standard author–date system, such as the Harvard<br />system. This includes information from the internet, where references should include titles, URL addresses<br />and dates when sites were visited. All sources of secondary information must be referenced. Footnotes may<br />be used to reference material and, provided that these are brief, up to 15 words as noted below will not be<br />included in the word count.<br />Word Count Advice<br />Students should produce one written report of their investigation. The report must not exceed<br />2,500 words.<br />Word limit<br />The following are not included in the word count.<br />• Title page<br />• Acknowledgments<br />• Contents page<br />• Titles and subtitles<br />• References<br />• Footnotes—up to a maximum of 15 words each<br />• Map legends and/or keys<br />• Labels—of 10 words or less<br />• Tables—of statistical or numerical data, or categories, classes or group names<br />• Calculations<br />• Appendices—containing only raw data and/or calculations<br />All the main text is included in the word count, including the research question, analysis, conclusion and<br />evaluation, as well as all annotations over 10 words and any footnotes over 15 words.<br />Where work is over the limit, moderators are advised to stop reading and students are likely to lose marks<br />not only under criterion G, but possibly also under other criteria, such as E and F.<br />Internal Assessment Marking Criteria <br />In the printed version this is replaced by page 68- 72 from the syllabus.<br />
