General Descriptors of Performance Level in Science subjects for KSSM Physics PERFORMANCE LEVEL DESCRIPTORS 1 Recall knowledge and basic skills of science. 2 Understand the knowledge and skills of science and explain the understanding. 3 Apply knowledge and science skills to carry out simple tasks. 4 Analyze information about knowledge and science skills in the context of problem solving. 5 Evaluate to make judgement about the science knowledge and skills in context problem solving and decision-making to carrying out a task. 6 Invent by applying the knowledge and skills in context problem solving and decision-making or carrying out an assignment in a new situation creatively and innovatively, giving due consideration to the social values/ economy/ culture of the community. Teachers can refer to Appendixto view the relationship between the key verbs of each Performance Level in Performance Standards and verbs in the Learning Standard with examples of student activity that can be implemented. All the investigations/ experiments/ activities listed in each theme in Table 10 are COMPULSORY. Investigations / experiments / activities are conducted using inquiry approach.
