Drawing on the records you have kept in your Skills File, comment critically on:

  • those aspects of IT where you feel you have made progress, and those where you feel you need more feedback or support;

  • what you found useful in helping you to make progress, such as comments from tutors, other students or colleagues, particular resources, particular ways of working or planning your work;

  • your own performance in presenting your outcomes as if you were assessing your own work; and

  • how you intend to develop further your IT skills.
