Describe the Results and Conclusions of your Fieldwork and R
Transcript of Describe the Results and Conclusions of your Fieldwork and R
Paragraph 1 and 2
Paragraph 3 and 4
• The purpose of the Introduction is to add structure to your answer -not to provide you with any additional marks.
• The best way to construct an introduction is to write a small paragraph that is specific to the question.
• This is an ideal place to outline your case study and the place in which you were able to investigate coastal development. For us, this would be Harwich.
• The introduction can be a brief explanation of your case study and give some details into the location or situation. It should also outline the outcomes of your answer –i.e. reviewing and describing the results and conclusions of both your primary and secondary research into the coastal development of Harwich.
Paragraph 1 and 2
• Paragraph 1 and 2 should be based on the fieldwork you were able to carry out.
• To structure these 2 paragraphs, first you need to be aware of which fieldwork methods you are going to describe. In our example we decided to base our primary methods upon:
• Deprivation Scoring
• For each of the primary research methods you need to be able to:
• Describe what it is (brief methodologies are credited in the exam)
• Show the examiner examples of the results you were able to retrieve
• Form conclusions that were made based upon results, trends and limitations of the fieldwork methods.
• Each of these paragraphs should relate to the question and form clear, concise points that summarise your results and conclusions for the examiner.
Paragraph 3 and 4
• These 2 paragraphs should follow the same structure as paragraph 1 and 2, however they should be based upon a similar number of Secondary research methods to make your answer reasonably equal. We used 2 examples of fieldwork methods , therefore in our 3rd and 4th paragraphs our 2 research methods were:
• Old maps
• Websites (e.g. rightmove.co.uk)
• Do the same thing again, making sure that the paragraphs relate back to the question; forming clear, concise points about the results and conclusions you were able to take from the research.
• Make sure you relate the results/conclusions to coastal development.
• Similar to the Introduction, a conclusion is not needed, however it distinguishes your answer as being well structured; proving that your answer is worthy of at least a Level 3 in the mark scheme.
• Relate back to the question to form a short paragraph, gathering all of your points and conclusions into a few sentences. This helps to reiterate any key points and make them stand out to the examiner.
• For a higher level answer, try to use as much terminology as possible and make it clear to the reader that you have a full understanding of both the question and your case study.
Key points from the mark scheme
• This answer is ‘focused on results and conclusions’ however it ‘may also include elements of data presentation and analysis’.
• The examiner should ‘credit approaches/ methodology’ that provide a ‘context/setting for the results and conclusions’.
• Examiners should ‘credit responses that make links to historical development’ and therefore allow the student to ‘comment on change over time’.
• The examiner is aware that ‘coastal development’ can relate to any of the following: urbanisation, coastalisation, industry, tourism, conservation developments, energy developments, building/developing coastal defences, etc.
• ‘Hold-the-line (coastal erosion) type answers are unlikely to answer the question successfully.’
• Answers that are not ‘well linked to coastal development’ are unlikely to receive higher than a Level 1 (1-4 marks).
Differences between Level 3 and 4
Level 3 Mark Scheme Requirements
‘Some range of results and/or conclusions’
‘Some use of geographical terminology’
‘Fieldwork/research is linked to coastal development’
‘Limited written language errors’
Level 4 Mark Scheme Requirements
‘A range of results and conclusions’
‘A structured account’
‘Good use of terminology’
‘Comments on coastal development’
‘Written language errors are rare’
