    Hi guys/girls,

    So I understand when to KAA however I don't understand where to evaluate. Do you do it straight after your first KAA and then your second etc?

    How many evaluative points do you need for each level of question (eg 10/15/20 marks)?

    Also do you need evaluation in your conclusions?

    And What does a conclusion need to contain?

    Would really appreciate any advice/help

    15 marks come from 4, 5 and 6 mark​​ questions with the commands being Calculate or Explain. These questions only target KAA.
    In addition there is:
    • one 10 mark (Assess) question = 6KAA + 4 Ev
    • one 15 mark​ (Discuss) question = 9KAA + 6 Ev
    • one 20 mark (Evaluate) question = 14KAA + 6Ev

    Edexcel new specification is 14KAA + 6EV, not about points for KAA on the 15 or 20 mark questions, you need to take a holistic approach to it.

    A lot of small points is not good for KAA or evaluation. For example many small evaluations would account for L1 Evaluations regardless of how many small points you do.

    Don't really know how but:
    Knowledge = identitying a point
    Application = quoting from the extract
    Analysis = explaining your point

    Watch 'econplusDal' on YouTube: he breaks down how to write a paragraph and in that he explains KAA.
