    I'm currently struggling with this OCR coursework (probably for numerous reasons!)
    One part of the mark scheme I don't think I understand is this 'perceptive evaluation of how they (form/structure/language) shape meanings' and 'detailed and perceptive evaluation of different interpretations with excellent reference's'.

    I don't have a clue what it wants when it says 'evaluate'.
    Can anyone explain it to me or give me an example?

    Evaluate means to assess the usefulness of something. In academic writing it usually means be critical - that is weigh up the case for and against, using evidence.

    For and against what exactly?
    I'm sorry, I'm still a little lost
