Read the part of the question that tells you what to do….
Underline parts of the question that you need to include when you write your answer.
Task 2: What levels are these answers?
Look again at the question. The ‘important things to do’ have been underlined:
State which elements
‘Lo-So salt’ does and does not contain,
giving your reasons
what further experiments
Nina needs to do to identify all the elements in ‘Lo-So salt’.
A ‘good’ answer (a
Level 3 answer
) will answer ALL parts of the question so will ….
Identify which elements are and are not present
Give reasons for the identification of elements using the information given
Describe the further experiments needed (at least one)
level 2 and level 1
will only answer some parts of the question.
Look at these five examples of candidate answers
In your group, decide whether you think each answer is a ‘level 1’ or a ‘level 2’ or a ‘level 3’ answer. You
don’t need a mark scheme to do this, just use your judgement, based on what the question is asking.
Justify your decisions by…
Underlining parts of the answers that you ‘like’ and work out which part of the question the answer
Making notes on the answer to say what you think is ‘missing’.
