I am looking at the band descriptors for the second aspect of the project – “Producing a requirements specification and test plan”
In the information for assessors section the guideline states:
“A requirements specification with no evidence of research and analysis cannot gain more than 4 marks”
Does this mean that they can score a maximum of 4 out of 10 for this aspect? This sentence only refers to the requirements specification but this aspect also covers the test plan.
For example, if a pupil completed a comprehensive and detailed test plan and did a strong requirements specification but with no evidence of research and analysis, could they score of maximum of 4 out of 10?
I did consider that the marks for this aspect could effectively be split into 2 sections with 5 marks for Requirements Specification and 5 marks for Test Plan?
