FieldworkMoreIn A Level syllabuses students must undertake personal investigative work based on first-hand and secondary data. This element of the exam accounts for between 16.7 and 20 per cent of the total mark in the case of all examining boards. Fieldwork itself has also changed in recent years, moving away from the traditional fieldwork day/week attended by the whole class, to personal investigation where students select an enquiry and are responsible for assessing methodologies, gathering data and writing up a report. This text tackles these areas, giving particular guidance to self-study. It explores skills and techniques, constructing questionnaires, using statistical analysis and gives advice on selecting a title. Sections relate to all the main themes of the syllabus.
