1. Context
What were the aims of each task? Why do you think you were asked to undertake them?

(An introduction to the project is required, where you must make it explicitly clear what is expected of you).

2. Research
What research did you undertake? How was this used?

(All your research, with referencing if applicable, should be presented. Each part of the research should have
clear indication as to how and where it was used, and how effective it was).

3. Problem Solving
What were the challenges? How did you use initiative to meet these challenges?

(This section should highlight how you explored the possibilities of solving new problems. Every time you ask
for assistance, look up how to do something, use trial and error until you get the correct result, or deal with
an unforeseen issue, you are ‘problem solving’).

4. Planning and Production

Why is planning and negotiation important for these sorts of tasks? What were the different
stages throughout the project?

(Each process will have different stages, and each stage will determine how you approach the next. Aside
from research, present how you prepared for each stage, how roles within your team were decided, and how
you managed your workload to deliver products of quality within a time-frame).

5. Practical Skills
What skills and knowledge did you demonstrate throughout the process?

(This could take the form of a ‘how-to’ guide. Use diagrams and easy to follow instructions on how you have
used particular software and other recording techniques).

6. Evaluation and reflection

How did evaluation allow you to progress throughout the process?

(Evaluations of projects are not only required at the end of a process. Continual analysis should take place in
order to inform each new phase. Ask ‘how can I achieve better results?’).

7. Presentation
Does your work competently communicate your ideas to its intended audience?

(High standards of presentation should be delivered. All of your evidence, including all presentations, audio
recordings etc, should not require further explanation. Through clear labelling it should be obvious the work is
your own and relates to a specific task).
