This is the second  part of a series where I share an example project – in five sections :-

  1. Planning
  2. Research
  3. Development
  4. Manipulative Skills
  5. Evaluation

This is the second section Research and I welcome any comments or questions and then will publish what was given by the external examiner at the end of the series. 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 second section is Research which has the following criteria:-

Levels/marks Aspect 1 Aspect 2 Aspect 3
Strategies Data collection Data processing and analysis
Complete/2 Identifies suitable strategies for research. Collects appropriate research material. Processes research material astutely with detailed analysis.
Partial/1 Identifies some relevant strategies.Does not identify strategies or strategies are teacher-directed. Collects some useful research material. Processes research material appropriately,though analysis is limited.
Not at all/0 Does not identify strategies or strategies are teacher-directed. Does not collect any research material or the material is inappropriate. Processes research material inappropriately.

Hope you enjoyed this section – any thoughts re grades or pointers as to what you would have done differently if you were a student doing this project?
