GCSE Information Technology Project
Presentation of your Survey
Having carried out your survey and
analysed the results you are now required to plan, design and prepare a formal
presentation of the same work to one or more specified audiences:
- Your chosen audience that you planned
your project for originally.
- Parents and prospective pupils at our
school open evening (or any reasonable alternative).
presentations are required for Grade D and above)
List of required activities:
- Write a plan for your main
presentations and collect background information, as follows:
- What kind of presentation will you
choose for each audience? - an illustrated report on paper, a wall poster, leaflet, an
internet page or in some other form. State reasons for your choice.
- State the relevant characteristics
(interests/abilities/knowledge/experience) of each audience and indicate how you will
adapt the content to suit these individual needs.
- What will be included in each
presentation? A sketch will help where relevant.
- Where will you get the information
and how? - You will be expected to use IT to combine different kinds of information
(text/images/charts) preferably from various sources (files you saved/internet/cd
roms/library books/company brochures)
- What software could you use and why?
- Produce an illustrated report of the
survey results for your chosen audience.
- Produce a poster or leaflet about
your survey for the school open evening or suitable alternative.
- Describe, with reasons to explain,
how the work was developed through each stage and for each specific audience or purpose
according to their different needs. (Grade C)
For higher grades (B,A,A*):
- Show your presentations to an
unfamiliar and critical audience (not classmates or IT teacher). Obtain feedback on good
and bad features of the work, and describe, with reasons, how it was then (or could be)
used during further development of the work.
- Produce an illustrated report
outlining the methods and techniques used to produce the work and the choice of software
used, in terms of its facilities, suitability, ease of use, reasons for choice, etc.
- Prepare a report evaluating the whole
project - how research was carried out, outcome related to original plan, problems
encountered, reliability and suitability of sources of information, help needed, possible
Hole-punch and collate all notes and
printed material in a sensible order. Use the string tag provided or a suitable
alternative - do not hand in your work in a plastic pocket or heavy ring folder. A
nice cover sheet will look good but remember that it will not be worth any extra marks.
Hand in your completed portfolio for
final marking by the end of the Spring Term. Make a note of any extra work you
intend to do and make sure that you get this to your teacher before the end of April.
See the Marking
Scheme for this part of your project.
