E-I.

Synthesise and Analyse Information / Data to Reproduce Existing Knowledge in Prescribed Formats. Ask Questions of Clarification / Curiosity.

Whilst questions of curiosity or need are the point of embarking on open inquiry, at Level I they emerge as evidence of applying knowledge new to students, where they begin to ask questions of clarification or of curiosity. Synthesis and/or analysis will take place at Level 1 to represent existing knowledge in formats provided by lecturers.
