Quite a few people struggle with evaluations because, let's be honest, they're boring so no one wants to learn them. Do you have a copy of this textbook?

It's the A2 version and there's an AS one as well (the girl has green hair instead of pink). They're really good because they're written by people that work with the exam board to create the specification. They also include (usually) 5 evaluation points so you can choose the ones that you like best.

There's also Tutor2U which offers theory and evaluations for the specification. I use these if I don't like the ones from the textbook or don't understand them.

They also have a youtube channel which covers topics in short lectures which includes evaluations. They're really good if you like visual/auditory learning.

If in doubt, you can usually say that there's research to support/contradict it (if there's a study in the theory, don't include it in your description but use it as an evaluation instead and it still gets credited), there's ethical issues, or bring in issues and debates. Issues and debates can make really good evaluation points as you can use reductionism, culture/gender bias, determinism, etc. and they're all valid points to be made.
