  4. Progression KS4 • Using digital techniques to present tables, graphs

    and diagrams • Assessment of the credibility of information and sources – currency, reliability and validity • Store data in appropriate format Advanced • Find, organise, store, manage, share and protect digital information • Analyse the credibility of information and sources – currency, comprehensiveness, validity, reliability, bias • Present information and numerical data in tables, graphs and diagrams • Using, manipulating or creating numerical data and information and presenting for different audiences • Use of digital techniques and methods for a range of activities including: collaboration, team working, creativity, problem solving and learning

    digitally for different audiences • Use and manipulate:- Effective use of Spreadsheets, appropriate selection of graphs/tables for purpose – Numerical data can be incorporated into main body of text – As a table – To construct a graph • When to use a table – Show how a category of information varies when measured at different points – Dataset contains relatively few numbers – When precise value is crucial and a graph would not convey the same level of precision
  9. Spreadsheet Tools & Techniques - not prescriptive / exhaustive KS4

    • Formulae • Functions – Sum – Average – Min – Max – Date – etc. • Formatting tools • Charts & Graphs (accurate, sensible) Advanced • Complex Functions? – If – Nested if – lookup etc. • Data Handling Techniques – Filter – Sort etc. • Efficiencies / automation? – pivot table – subtotals – scenarios – macros etc.
  10. Task Create a spreadsheet for Vacation Consortium - Surf Studies

    GCSE Results 1. Function to calculate Sunvil %A*-C 2. Fill down for all LA's 3. Function to calculate the total number of entries 4. Fill across to find the total A*-C 5.
