What do they mean when they say that you have to evaluate in your argument?

Can somebody give me an example, please?

Many thanks!

Hi,

I struggled with evaluating too... However all you really need to know is that evaluation is all about making a critical judgement. For example, you would evaluate a film you watched at the cinema by weighing up its positives and negatives. After weighing up the negatives and positives you would then need to reach a valid conclusion on what you believe is the most sensible answer (morally right or wrong).

Since evaluating questions tend to obtain the most marks, its always good to plan before writing the essay out. its a step by step process, you'll get there.

Here's a link that might help you:

Good luck!

Lucy.
