SUBSKILL

Skill strand: Evaluate information and its sources critically

This is a key skill for independent research and responding to unseen passages in assessments. The top quartile in the cohort is performing at a very high level. The weakest section of students needs instructional intervention, typically in the form of scaffolded exercises for independent reading and research. Students will benefit from explicit instructions in strategies for evaluating sources of information.
