ObservingAverage ‘O’ Level[ ] Practical Skills o L3Measurements are taken with care[ ] An attempt has been made to control the variables[ ] o L4Variables have been controlled [ ] A range of measurements have been taken[ ] o L5Variable where carefully controlled that could have affected the outcome[ ] Errors where minimised by repeating the test[ ] o L6For continuous variables a big enough range was chosen[ ] o L7The measurement taken where precise[ ] The best variable was tested to answer the question[ ] What level did you achieve: What do you need to do to get to the next level Table and Graph o L3Add data to a table or bar chart[ ] OR Use scale and axes given to draw a graph[ ] Recognise the X and Y axis on a line graph[ ] o L4 Add the correct headings and units to a table[ ] Calculate the mean from a set of results[ ] Plot a simple graph with sensible scale, and label both axes correctly with Units[ ] Describe a simple pattern in your data[ ] o L5Choose sensible range and scale for each axis of a line graph and label each axis correctly[ ] Calculate mean from repeat readings[ ] Decide to draw a straight or curved line of best fit and add it accurately[ ] o L6Exclude odd-looking results when calculating average values[ ] Use a formula to do calculations[ ] Plot a simple graph with sensible scale, and label both axes correctly with Units[ ] o L7Identify if the X and Y axis are directly proportional to each other[ ] Calculate the gradient from a line graph[ ] Accurately plot a line graph with the correct scale and an accurate line of best fit[ ] Teacher’s Assessment What level did you achieve: What do you need to do to get to the next level

Analysis Average ‘A’ Level [ ] Describing the Graph o L3Describe one thing that your table bar chart shows[ ] o L4Describe a simple pattern in the data from a bar chart of line graph[ ] i.e. the bigger the ………, the bigger/smaller the………… Describe if the slop of the graph is increasing or decreasing[ ] Circle any odd looking data[ ] o L5 Accurately describe the pattern shown by the line graph[ ] Decide if there is a pattern in the data, when there are several odd-looking results[ ] o L6Write a description of what your graph shows you using data from the graph [ ] Recognise when a graph shows you that doubling the value on the X-axis means the Y-axis doubles[ ] o L7Make suggestions of how odd-looking results could have affected an average or the pattern in a line graph [ ] Identify situations when the values on the X and Y axes are directly proportional to each other[ ] Conclusion o L3 Identify if you think your results are good or not[ ] o L4Draw a clear, simple conclusion that describes any patterns in the results[ ] Identify evidence that supports your conclusion[ ] o L5 Draw a simple conclusion using more than 1 piece of evidence from a table[ ] Explain whether your conclusion supports or opposes your prediction and helps to Answers your original question[ ] Identify results that are not consistent with the rest of your evidence[ ] o L6Draw a conclusion, identifying the evidence that supports it and suggest a scientific explanation for the outcome[ ] Suggest a scientific reason for results which are not consistent with the rest[ ] o L7Explain whether unexpected results are likely to be the result of error or a sign that the theory is not correct[ ] Suggest alternative conclusion to the one you have drew, that is also consistent with the data and compare which is more likely [ ] Teacher’s Assessment What level did you achieve: What do you need to do to get to the next level What level did you achieve: What do you need to do to get to the next level
