12 4/23/2017Moderation Comments 2011“In order to access the higher marks in task a, candidates must evaluate the commercial multimedia products, rather than describe them. There must also be a detailed explanation of how the product influenced the design of the product that the candidates produce. A number of candidates evaluated web-based multimedia products rather than non web-based multimedia products. Some candidates produced evaluation that were descriptive in nature rather than a critical analysis of the products; this restricted the marks awarded to a maximum of mark band 2.”Principal Moderator - OCR Report to Centres June 2011 ©OCR12

15 4/23/2017Moderation Feedback 2012“To access the higher marks in task a, candidates need to evaluate the commercial multimedia products, rather than describe them; some schools awarded mark band 3 for descriptions rather than evaluations. There must also be a detailed explanation of how the product influenced the design of the product that the candidates produce. Some candidates produced evaluations that were descriptive in nature rather than a critical analysis of the products; this restricted the marks awarded to a maximum of mark band 2.”Principal Moderator - OCR Report to Centres June 2012 ©OCR15
