Evaluation Questions The new style of question from 2012 onwards...
The Final Evaluation Question The last question will ask you to give an OBJECTIVE OVERVIEW of the two passages. The guidance states: ◦ “You can write your answer in ordinary paragraphs or in ‘extended bullet points’ – you choose the way you feel most comfortable with.”
Key Points to Note: Be careful to check what you are being asked to identify: it could be AREAS OF AGREEMENT, DISAGREEMENT or BOTH. Plan your answer: use rough notes to help you identify the key ideas and discard less important ones.
Example: (from the Specimen paper) Both writers express their views about the importance of trees. Identify key areas on which they agree. In your answer, you should refer in detail to both passages. 5 marks You may answer this question in continuous prose or in a series of developed bullet points.
Marking Instructions: The mark for this question should reflect the quality of response in two main areas: ◦ Identification of the key areas of agreement in attitude / ideas ◦ Level of detail given in support A response which clearly identifies at least three key areas of agreement in attitude and has at least some supporting evidence will score a minimum of 3 marks.
How the marks are awarded: 5 marks – comprehensive identification of three or more key areas of agreement with full use of supporting evidence. 4 marks – clear identification of three or more key areas of agreement, with relevant use of supporting evidence. 3 marks – identification of three or more key areas of agreement, with supporting evidence. 2 marks – identification of two key areas of agreement with supporting evidence. 1 mark – identification of one key area of agreement with supporting evidence. 0 marks – failure to identify any key area of agreement and / or total misunderstanding of task.
Your Turn! Read over the two passages again and note down what you think are the ESSENTIAL AREAS OF AGREEMENT between them. There may be some overlap among the areas of agreement, so check if you are covering two points or one!
Finding supporting evidence Evidence from the passages may include quotations, but these should be supported by explanations (i.e. using your own words). Copy and complete the following table:
