3.5 info for students presentation analysis and evaluation 2013
3.5 AssessmentQuick Reference guide
Tasks Each of the tasks must be related to the research questions Each task must have specific info from the research in it All tasks must be complete by the end of the term You may think about your answer and plan it but it may not be pre-written Always check the Marking rubric for more info.
The Rubric Make sure you have a copy – if you haven’t , it is on the Knet Geography – Year 13 – 3.5 info – Marking Rubric Refer to it all the way through for success Always look at the Excellence column as if you miss it you will get Merit, If you miss Achieved then you get Not Achieved !

The Tasks Broken down into each separate task with instructions and hints.
Two geographic skills are A range of geographic utilised using appropriate skills (three or more)1D Presentation conventions in the are used in the presentation. One of presentation to good these must be original effect. Appropriate and relate to the field conventions are used. data obtained. One must be original and relate to the field data obtained.• Task D• Your Presentation must show the data you collected in an appropriate way.• You need to use a variety of ways to show the data.• All data presentation methods must have all the necessary conventions to score maximum marks
Two differences between Several (3 or more)1E Analysis the 2 beaches are differences between the 2 described using field data. beaches are described in Include Concepts (pattern) detail using a range of specific field data. Include Concepts (pattern) Task E This is the WHAT question, you need to describe what the presentation shows you. Use data from the presentation eg this shows that Muriwai is 2500 km from Australia Compare the beaches eg Muriwai is 2500km from Australia whereas St Leonards is only 3km from Rangitoto. Read a little more deeply eg therefore there is a greater fetch and so the waves have more time to build up so Muriwai is high energy …

(Process) Includes Concept This task askes you to provide reasons WHY you found what (Process) you did in the presentation ie why the beach profile is more steep at st Leonards and flatter at Muriwai. This must be based on Processes and come from your theory notes or own research. Not waves generally but waves at Muriwai and St Leonards You must use Research data in your answer and relate it back to the research Question. Research at home but write in class This answer should be a series of steps to get to the outcome You must include a GC, ‘Process’ is probably the best here. Provide a definition of what Process means as well to let the marker know that you know.

Restate your research qns and answer them generally, Include the names of the beaches but then just generalise from there. Eg I found that at Muriwai there was … and at st Leonards there was … and this is because … This is a short recap only not a big amount of writing
