  • Discuss/Asses questions need to be both sided, not biased.
HideShow resource information


Discuss/ Assess questions are to be both sided, as they tend to be 8/10 mark questions, you can do this by constructing it like:

  • intergrate the question into the answer
  • talk about the negative
  • if negative is not available, then talk about what would have happened if there were no positives


The first 3 questions of each section tend to be identifying, explaining and assessing/discussing questions

the last few questions will be the 8/10 marks

and the first few will be 4-6 marks

Confusing Terms

If the question goes along the lines of assess health and well-being, the question is just asking you to assess the PIES of the person, obviously don't write something like

P: physically.. has met the needs

I:... has met the needs by

E:.... has met the needs by

S:.... and so on

integrate the answers, it doesnt even have to be in order, just get the positives and negatives of the persons PIES
