Humanities Levels

We continue to use levels across Humanities subjects – here are agreed descriptions across the faculty.  For individual assessments students will be given more detailed levels descriptors specific to the task set.

Level 3

I can identify some ideas and I am beginning to describe them. The description I give may not be accurate or it may not make sense. I use very few key words from the subject.

Level 4

I can identify and describe some ideas. The description is accurate and makes sense.
I use some key words from the subject.

Level 5

I can describe ideas accurately and in detail. I have begun to explain and/or justify these ideas.
I have begun to sequence ideas, but this is incomplete.
I refer to appropriate examples of real places, events, religions and people.
I use a range of specialist vocabulary appropriately.

Level 6

I have begun to produce balanced arguments by considering another point of view.

Level 7

I give clear and full explanations and justifications that link ideas together in a way that is easy to understand.
My ideas are sequenced accurately and in a complete manner.

Level 8

I have achieved everything in level 7. I can do all of these things without my teacher having to prompt me.
I have extensive knowledge. This helps me to understand the context of geographical, historical and religious places, events and people. As a result, I can construct my own enquiry questions and they are appropriate. My investigations and observations are relevant, detailed and insightful.
I evaluate evidence critically. My evaluation allows me to reach a supported judgement about the merits of different perspectives. I use my analysis to inform the conclusions that I draw and the subsequent questions that I ask.
I use a wide range of specialist vocabulary with precision and this helps make my work coherent.
I link the work that I have done in other subjects to my studies in Humanities and this helps me to make insightful comments about the world.
