C-III.

Evaluate Information / Data and the Inquiry Process Using Criteria Related to the Aims of the Inquiry.

Lecturers prescribe literature, laboratory, field or clinical research tasks or any combination of these, and, at Level III of ‘evaluate’, students work independently of the lecturer or tutor to determine evaluation criteria relevant to the direction that they have pursued. This includes not only their information or data gathered, but also the process that they used to gather those.
