This will begin the first part of a series where I share an example project – in five sections :-
- Manipulative Skills
After I have published these I welcome any comments or questions and then will publish what was given by the external examiner. Note our Design Technology department now asks all students to produce the folio as a PDF document that can easily be printed and shared and any freehand or other drawings scanned and attached to each sheet.
Anyway without further ado – the first section is Planning which has the following criteria:-
|Levels/marks||Aspect 1||Aspect 2||Aspect 3|
|Defining the problem||Formulating a brief or research question||Selecting variables or specifications|
|Complete/2||Identifies a focused problem for a design project or investigation.||States a detailed brief or research question that is appropriate to the level of study.||Selects and explains appropriate variables or specifications.|
|Partial/1||Identifies a suitable problem, but lacks detail in the explanation.||States a brief or research question, but this is not explained in detail.||Selects some appropriate variables or specifications.|
|Not at all/0||Does not identify a suitable problem or repeats the general aim provided by the teacher.||Does not state a brief or research question or the brief or research question is inappropriate.||Does not select appropriate variables or specifications.|
