Mobile phone imageSection L & M - Evaluations

You need to evaluate:

You produced evaluation criteria, based on audience needs, in section C. All you need to do here is go through the criteria and evaluate how well you met each point. You should explain these points as well - you'll notice that the markgrid uses the term "comprehensive".

You might want to take a spare copy of your evaluation criteria into the exam with space for writing on. That's fine, or you can type your evaluation (or do a bit of both).

You evaluation of your own performance needs to focus on problems you had and how you overcame them. As you'll see in the markgrid, this wants to be related to your screenshots from rows I and J.

You need to have had some problems to get these marks! If you were perfect then you can't really get them. I would think most people would make at least some formatting mistakes and need to undo them, or need to tweak something when a draft print showed it didn't quite work. These are all you need for this section - but it is important to keep a record of problems and how you overcame them (I mentioned this in the introduction to sections H and O by the way...)
