It all started when one of my A2 students asked me today: “How do you get full marks for evaluation?" in relation to a BUSS3 Question 4 (the 34 marker)
It can be summed up in 2 words:
(Just a note that the examples given are BUSS3 related but could be applied to any evaluation question in BUSS1 or 2 also)
So what does this mean? Let's break it down...
Considered in relation to something else; comparative
In other words, it is the importance of one point or argument in relation or comparison to another.
So, how can you ensure you are meeting the requirements for “good evaluation"?
In your Points
You need good arguments - so the points you make must be relevant, supported by evidence from the case study, developed using connectives, with an evaluative sentence at the end (where you summarise the significance of the point in relation to the question) – for more information on this refer to blog on Maximising your Marks in BUSS3
In your Conclusion
Consider using prompts in your conclusions for any evaluation:
Prompts in your conclusions specific to BUSS3 Question 4:
Also, a checklist could be used for any evaluation:
If you practice this enough, you will be on your way to “good evaluation"
Ok, so this blog is a bit longer than 2 words, sorry about that!
If you only remember 2 words, remember these: RELATIVE SIGNIFICANCE.
