I can't do it!! I just don't know how to get my report for Outcome 3 perfect (as that's obviously what my teacher wants)... does anyone have any tips, and can someone tell me how the report should be laid out and what I need to calculate etc. I'm doing the Variable Resistor - Unit 2 Outcome 3 experiment by the way.

Thanks.

What data do you have and what do you intend to prove with your data? We can take it from there if you give us a bit more information.

They have to get full marks to pass I think.

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And--which is more--you'll be a Man, my son!

For all the sciences you have to pass all the outcomes of the course. Outomes 1 and 2 are assessed via NABS for each unit.

There is a separate outcome - number 3 - which is a practical assessment and also must be passed. In chemistry this takes the form of PPAs - one for each unit. For biology and physics you only need to pass one outcome 3 assessment and this can come from any unit in the course.

You need to do some very simple practical work and do a quick writeup which doesn't take very long.

I think you have to get full marks to pass, although I may be wrong.

I did mine on finding the inverse square law. It was done before I started on the course. Quite straightforward. rolleyes.gif

When I did higher physics my outcome 3 report was on finding the refractive index of perspex.

If you are talking about advanced higher then you don’t need the investigation (but you lose 25 marks) but you do need the day book and I think the deadline for the day book was a week ago and the investigation was a while ago. If you mean higher (LO3) then yes you need it and I think it was a week ago as well. Both the LO3 and the day books are like nabs so if you hand them in late and sit the exam (and pass) then your grade will just be postponed (until sometime during winter I think).

I’m not 100% sure that’s right but I am about 98%

Yes I am talking about the higher investigation.

So what you are saying is that I should try to hand it in tomorrow and I'll still get a pass eventually.

Thats a load off my mind, thanks.

Why have you not handed it in already, has the rest of the class handed it it?

What might have happened is that your teacher has entered you has having passed the LO3 even though you have not handed it in. You should really get it in as soon as possible though.

If you don't have it entered as having being passed then on your certificate you won't have passed higher physics until the next certification run (or you can pay for a new certificate to be sent to you.)

Im not really sure what happened. We did it in the first month of the course. He handed it back to me with some corrections to do and said, "Just hand it in by the end of the course" So I promptly forgot about it. I have no idea if others have done it or not.

So does the SQA just trust the teacher's mark for the investigation?

teachers dont mark the investigation its externally assessed.

However i am a little confused because you have posted in the higher forum and you said

"yes its the higher investigation"

then there is no higher investigation but there is internally assessed practical course work tasks which arent sent away

If i am not here i am somewhere else

Ok, so the practical work I did (for the higher) is all internally assessed?

Yeah that confused me to but I think he means LO3.

LO3's are internally marked but they sqa can ask to see them to make sure no cheating is going on.

Ok, so in theory, my teacher could have passed me without seeing a final draft.

Great, Thanks for all your help guys.

To pass LO3 you need 100% anyway. Get it into your teacher ASAP, as the SQA can moderate him (although not likely during exams) and if he fails moderation because you have not handed your LO3 in then the whole department will be moderated for several years in a row and you will not be their favourite person!

Yeah, I just saw him and he didn't even know that I handt handed it in, So he had me down as a pass and we are probably not gonna get moderated this year as we passed moderation easily last year. So I guess I got away with it.
