1 : 3 Devise an overall plan for investigations – 6 marks available

        

Candidate presents a list of investigations (minimum five) 2 marks

        

                Candidates who provide a list of possible investigations which focus   clearly on

        

  • the core key points of the project brief
  • the candidates specification points
  • have a clear aim/purpose

                  will be awarded 2 marks.

        

                Candidates who provide a list of investigations which do not focus      clearly on the key points and the specification will be awarded 1 mark.

        

Obvious omissions from the list of investigations will result in marks being deducted.

        

Candidate identifies techniques to be used 2 marks

        

        All techniques must be appropriate for the investigations and so allow

the candidate the possibility of collecting relevant data/information.

        

        Where techniques are not consistently appropriate, candidates will be

awarded 1 mark.

        

Candidate justifies the need for the investigation 2 marks

        

        All justifications must be

        

  • well thought out

        

  • linked to the investigation.

        

        Lack of clarity within the justification will result in candidates being

unable to gain the full mark allocation available.

        

                From the proposed list of investigations drawn up in 1 : 3 above,         candidates should form a prioritised list of those investigations which they propose to undertake.

        

                No marks are awarded at this stage but candidates are expected to    focus on those investigations most relevant to the needs of the project brief. A number of investigations may be combined by using one technique.

        

        No more than 3 investigations depending on their nature, could be

realistically carried out in the time available. The three investigations identified should ensure that all specification points are investigated. Candidates will be disadvantaged if they do less than 3 as they will not have collected sufficient data to create a valid solution.

        

 

                Candidates who intend to use a questionnaire as an investigation        must issue a minimum of 20 in order to gain valid results. If, however, too many questionnaires are distributed, collecting the data may become problematic for candidates.

        

                A minimum of 3 website/literary sources should be evident in a literary/internet search.

        

        Candidates should complete this work on pages 9 – 11 of the pro forma.

Appendix 1

Higher Technological Project

Guidance on Carrying out Investigations/Tests

Three investigations and two tests must be carried out.

The aim, which should be linked to the candidates’ specification, should be rewritten or cut and pasted from page 8 of the pro forma onto the top of the investigation page.

Questionnaire

  • Minimum of 20 respondents.
  • Minimum 5/8 relevant/valid questions linked to aim/specification to allow relevant data to be collected.
  • Questions and all possible answers must be displayed.
  • All responses must be displayed including nil responses.
  • Given constraints of space, it is not necessary to display results as pie charts/graphs.  Table format for displaying results of questionnaires can be space saving.

Survey

  • Must identify the source(s) of information.
  • Source of information must be relevant to investigation.
  • The following sources could be used including the Internet, literary, shop, school canteen/cafe as a source of information.
  • The source of information should be identified.
  • The place selected should be related to the quality and quantity of the data available rather than the number of sources however more than one source should be used.
  • Information should be displayed using appropriate headings, sub-divisions etc.

Interviews

  • Carefully consider the suitability of the person interviewed. Must clearly identify their position in establishment/job title.
  • Minimum 5/8 relevant questions linked to aim/specification to allow relevant data to be collected.
  • Open-ended questions should be used to allow more data to be collected from the interviewee.
  • Questions should be carefully formatted to extract useful facts and avoid one word responses such as Yes/No.
  • All questions and responses must be displayed.

Internet/Literary search

  • All sources must be clearly identified – a minimum of 3 sources is required.
  • Graphics may be included where relevant.
  • Data collected should be organised using appropriate headings/sub-divisions etc.  Information should not be lifted ‘en bloc’ from websites. It is appropriate to summarise key points which are relevant to the aim/specification.

 

Costing

  • Breakdown cost of all ingredients/components must be included.
  • Details of quantities and unit costs must be included.  Sources should be included where appropriate.
  • Comparative costing should measure ‘like for like’.

NB Costing only proves cost of items/components. On its own it does not provide low/high cost, value for money, acceptability of price to target group.

Nutritional Analysis

  • Sources must be shown.
  • All nutrients relevant to the aim should be shown.
  • Nutritional analysis of all ingredients must be included. (A ‘total’ for a dish is not acceptable).
  • Sufficient data must be accessed in order to draw relevant conclusions.
  • When used as a test the suitability of the results should be assessed by a suitable expert eg community, food technologist etc.

Fabric Analysis

  • There is no need to repeat fabric tests where information is already easily available in textbooks/websites.
  • Fabrics used for testing must be clearly identified ie construction/fibre composition.
  • Only fabrics being considered for potential solution should be tested/sampled/ investigated towards final solution.
  • Details of method testing must be given.

Sensory Testing

  • All potential solutions must be clearly described.
  • Breakdown of results must be shown. Summary of results is not acceptable.
  • Key must be provided.
  • It is appropriate to ask questions to elicit potential improvements/modifications.
  • It is suggested for sensory testing that a minimum of five people are used to assess the products.
