In all past papers I've done, there is generally a question asking you to write something where your language is being assessed. This is generally 8 marks.
I think I understand majority of what they're looking for, generally a couple of points of the situation, then as many points as possible about how. One area I don't get though, it them saying the candidate will use technical terminology. However in the answer sheet, words used don't seem that technical.
For an example:
Explain why a systems analyst needs to identify the information requirements of a system, and describe the different methods of fact finding that many be used. (The quality of written communication will be assessed in your anser to this question.)
Mark band 6-8. High level response.
Candidate has explained the importance of and described some methods of fact finding in detail.
Candidate has discussed suitability of more than one method for particular situations.
Candidate has used appropriate technical terminology throughout.
There are no spelling errors or errors of grammar.
Mark band 3-5. Medium level response.
Candidate has explained the importance and described some methods of fact finding.
Candidate has mentioned more than one method for a particular situation and has discussed the suitability of one method for a particular situation.
Candidate has used some technical terminology in the response.
There may be spelling errors or grammatical errors, but they are not obtrusive.
Mark band 0-2. Low level response.
Candidate has stated points about the importance of or listed methods of fact finding.
There will be a lack of cohesion in the response.
Candidate will fail to use correct technical terms in the response.
Spelling and grammatical errors affect the readability of the response
