The Investigative Skills Assessment This is a unit of your GCSE done in class which counts for 25% of your final mark. You will carry out a practical investigation and then sit the ISA paper. You will also be assessed on the table you produce before you do the practical work and on the graph you draw after you have collected the data.
The Investigative Skills Assessment In this first lesson we will look at the method and you will have to decide upon some of the details in order to make it a fair test and reliable. You will make your concrete block template ready to start the practical next lesson.
