Physics Coursework: Planning
THIS IS LEGACY MATERIAL - the science is correct but the marks no longer apply!
Up to 8 marks are available for planning your practical investigation.
As with the other 3 areas of assessment, the criteria you have to meet are hierarchical - you must achieve the lower marks before you can be awarded marks higher up.
The Planning Criteria
The table below indicates the criteria your work will be marked against. Failing to outline even the most basic of procedures would mean that you could not score P.2a, and as a result would score zero for the plan.
Writing a Plan
Most people don't finish writing the plan until after they've done the whole investigation! It is a very good idea to produce a rough plan of what you intend doing before you start - teachers should demand this.
Most of the marks come from talking about equipment and discussing science that applies to what you are going to investigate. Let's see what sorts of things you need to include to get the marks.
