    I found that the most effective way of studying was by:

    * Making summary notes from the syllabus.
    * Doing past papers and getting my teacher to mark them
    * Reading the Excel and Leading Edge CAFs example answers.
    * Looking at band 6 answers from the Board of studies site.
    * Starting a revision session forum with other CAFS students here at Bored of Studies.

    Unfortunately like Possessionless aka now (youandmexo) I wrote most of my notes. However, there are some good notes within the resources section on this site. Also Excel and Leading Edge have good summaries.

    There is a list underneath the resources section about this and it is detailed in the CAFs HSC books.

    Re: Help for CAFS students.

    Can someone please give some feedback on my answer for the 2010 HSC paper Question 24 which was worth 8 marks. I am in Year 10 and I haven't even started the course yet but I want to know what kind of mark my answer would get in terms of Year 12 standards.

    http://www.boardofstudies.nsw.edu.au...ly-studies.pdf

    This is my answer

    "Age - as children get older, they generally do not feel that they need their parent's guidance or advice anymore, this can cause an major relationship strain between a parent and a child. The parent, may in some ways feel that they are being "alienated" or "neglected" by their child and so there becomes a major communication gap between an parent and a child and they both feel unimportant to each other, neglected and don't feel like they really need each other, this can also cause major arguments between parents. Some parents do feel that they always get to "control" their children's lives no matter what age, the child will eventually get sick of it and this will result in them moving out or maybe even cutting all ties with the parent.

    Previous expereinces/upbringing - Previous expereinces/upbringing plays an major part in a parenting and caring relationship. Many parents do feel that if they were taught or brought up in a certain way, then that is how they should be raising their kids too. For example, if their parents brought them up to be a doctor or get into medicine, then they would want their child to get in that too. This can cause an positive/negative effect on the child, depending on how they perceive this and what they think of it. If the child feel it is too much and they want to travel a different pathway, and their parents disprove of it, this can cause strain and tension between the relationship. Or for another example, if a parent was brought up in an "indulgent" style, and they implement that on their kids, and depending on the characteristics of the child, if they feel they are getting everything they want, they might in some ways feel that they have a hold over their parents, so different parenting styles play a different part and how the children perceive them.


    What do you think? How much would you give me out of 8?

    Re: Help for CAFS students.

    Personally, I think that this would receive around a 4 or 5 out of 8.

    Some points for you to ponder:

    *Incorporate use of wellbeing.

    *How parents want their children to conform to societal norms.

    *How parents previous upbringing may force them into a certain parenting style that might affect the relationship between the child i.e. authoritarian.

    *Something about how needs and wants perhaps in the age section affect the relationship.

    *Age of parents- how they are still learning and that there is no set guide to parenting.

    *A bit more punctuation- if possible.


    Just quickly I have detailed some brief points that would probably get further ehance your response towards gaining an 8. I have also included some examples for the other dot points mentioned.


    Age

    As the age of parent or carer increases so does the chance of them being financially able to support a child.

    Older couples are more likely to have established their careers and have more resources available to them and feel secure in their life stage.

    Many carers are aged less than 18 years old and are providing support and care to a parent, child or relative. The role can have a positive effect on building relationships and developing skills. It can have a negative effect as they have conflict in meeting their own needs and those they care for.

    I guess if you wanted to take this a step further you could put in recent examples of how granparents are becoming the parents of their children's children and how age plays a factor.



    Education

    Level of education may influence the type of relationship that is developed with dependants. Generally carers with a high level of education tend to research parenting techniques through books, videos and websites. Parents who are highly educated are more likely to have the knowledge and understanding of parenting and caring roles and responsibilities.

    Many parenting techniques are being taught through formal networks such as schools and hospitals. This increases the knowledge of the practical and social skills necessary to be an effective parent.

    The parent’s value of education influences their goals for their children’s education. A parent who attended tertiary education is more likely to encourage their children throughout their formal schooling to achieve similar goals.



    Media

    The media provides a number of examples of both positive and negative parenting eg ‘Super Nanny’. This program provides a range of strategies that can be applied to enhance family functioning through interpersonal relationships. Today Tonight, a current affair program often highlights the negative examples of parenting with the abuse and neglect. A number of magazines exist to specifically assist parents. These magazines provide information on topics such as nutrition, dealing with tantrums, toilet training, adjustment to school, and managing family change. This information will empower the parent and its application will enhance family relationships.

    Television, movies and advertising can provide examples of unrealistic parenting situations. This may cause a parent stress or conflict between family members as they are unable to achieve these unrealistic expectations.



    Previous experiences/own upbringing

    The first contact that people have with parenting is through their own experiences as a child and observations of other parents. Concepts such as communication methods, discipline, parenting styles and gender role stereotyping have been modelled.

    A large number of adults who abuse their children may have been abused or neglected as children. This will not enhance positive family relationships.


    Hope that it helps! Better yet, if you want a true indication of excellent responses check with the teacher that is to be running CAFS next year or consult the Board of Studies resource section.

    Re: Help for CAFS students.

    Yes, I do think that you are in the right direction.

    It is obvious that you are keen to do well in your studies. Over time once you learn the syllabus content this will enhance your answers. I can tell that you have followed a set structure and incorporated a few examples to explain what you mean, which gains the higher marks.

    Re: Help for CAFS students.

    That's so good to hear. I find CAFS extremely interesting, can't wait for Year 11 and 12. I also want feedback on my answer from 2003 paper question 11 which is out of 2 marks.

    My answer is:

    "A sense of belonging/peer acceptance and self-esteem. Many of the youth who feel this way are heavily influenced by how other people perceive them; their words and their body language towards them as they are not mature enough to let it affect them. With a sense of belonging they will be able to feel that they actually belong and "fit in" and self-doubt and poor self-esteem won't occur.

    Re: Help for CAFS students.

    It's good but probably a little light on.

    I say this, as you have identified the need; but haven't really explained the significance of the need to youth. To get the 2nd mark you would need to go into a bit more detail on such topics: self-esteem, sense of identity, security, acceptance and/or belonging.

    Significance to the needs of youth could include the importance in this age group to be part of a group, part of a friendship network or fitting into the model of what is seen to be acceptable by peers. Perhaps you could also mention the high level of youth suicide rates and its possible link with teens trying to fulfill their satisfaction of needs and trying to conform/belong.




    Below I have included the marking rubric:


    Question 11


    Outcomes assessed: H2.2



    Criteria Marks

    • 2 Marks- Demonstrates basic knowledge and understanding of the identified need and its significance for youth.


    • 1 Mark- Demonstrates some knowledge of needs.

    Re: Help for CAFS students.

    So to improve my answer I could have said.

    "A sense of belonging/peer acceptance and self-esteem. Why this need is most important for the youth is because at a young age, they need to feel like they "belong" and "fit in" to a group to make sure they keep their social life active and they are not feeling neglected or unwanted, or else this will cause scars and they can develop into very insecure and shy and this will affect them as they get older as they get out into the workforce and take on greater roles and responsibilties. A lack of self-esteem and sense of belonging could also lead to an youth feeling so down that they actually might feel that they shouldn't be living anymore, thus commit suicide. Self-esteem and a sense of belonging is very important for the youth as it affects them emotionally and can cause major scars that could potentionally affect them as they get older if those needs are not satisfied or met.

    Anything else I could have mentioned?

    Re: Help for CAFS students.

    Much better. Although take a look at your grammar and punctuation. Try reading that aloud to note where pauses should be. As some sentences were rather long and I was looking for the end, no offence!
    83 words in a sentence is not good, this more like a paragraph. Normally around 20-25 words in a sentence is a good limit.

    Re: Help for CAFS students.

    I understand that; I do have a bit of a habit of doing that as I always go on about a certain point in one sentence. I just use constructive criticism to try to improve. What about my answer from 2010 paper Question 21.

    "Gathering information from individual people using any type of particular methodology can be a much more time consuming process than gathering data from print sources. For example, randomly questioning a small town on an particular issue will take up far more time than gathering that same data from an newspaper article or a book or a magazine. A second disadvantage is that if you are looking to find out factual information, rather than subjective information, print sources will be much more helpful as if you are finding out factual information from people, they do not have any solid base to back up their information, and there quite a few print sources such as factual books which can be classified as valid sources and have a greater range of information. Another disadvantage could be that the person who is being interviewed may be disinterested/unable to answer the questions, and this will waste the researcher's time. An advantage of collecting data from people is that if you are looking for opinions, beliefs, etc then interviewing people for them will be give you an source to an range of different opinions, beliefs, and attitudes and this can greatly help if one is conducting an research project on any subjective question. This cannot be done with print sources as effectively. Advantages of print sources is that they are much less time consuming, and since there are an wide range of print sources with a wide range of information, researchers can enhance their knowledge of certain topics. Disadvantages include they are very limited print sources that can be used if you want to research about opinions, beliefs, attitudes or any other subjective information and sometimes the writer of the print source may be biased through what they write.

    Thoughts? How much out of 8?

    Re: Help for CAFS students.

    This answer would probably gain a 5 or 6 out of 8. You have detailed some good points. However, CAFS terminology could greatly enhance this. Once again you have the ideas but the structuring is not perfect.

    Briefly I have provided some points that I remember my teacher for CAFS and D&T discussed. I also managed to find the marking centre notes and have included this below:



    Print-includes books/texts, journals, magazines, newspapers, etc

    Advantages:

    • Wide range of resources available on a range of subjects and styles
    • If a book/text or journal, the author may be an expert on the topic
    • Newspapers, magazines, journals may be reporting on current and contemporary information on the topic

    Disadvantages:

    • If a magazine, book, journal or newspaper, the information may not be accurate
    • Resources might be too general, notspecific enough
    • Not as immediate as using electronic sources so may be more time consuming
    • Information may be subjective
    • Information may be out of date
    • Space required to store and use
    • May not be original research but reflect other works


    People/Individuals


    Advantages:

    • The person may be easy to access and they may be quite willing to take the time to assist with the research
    • Able to clarify points through interviewing
    • The person may be an expert on the topic and be able to provide valid and accurate information
    • Allows the first-hand data to be collected
    • Networking possibilities

    Disadvantages


    • The individual may not be willing to assist in the research task Interviewing can be time consuming
    • People may not want to complete a survey/questionnaire
    • People may not provide serious responses to questions asked
    • May be biased





    Marking Centre Notes:


    Question 21

    Criteria



    7–8 Marks
    • Demonstrates extensive knowledge and understanding of the advantages and disadvantages of obtaining information from print sources and people/individuals
    • Effectively communicates ideas, issues and opinions in an organised logical and coherent manner, using appropriate terminology


    5-6 Marks

    • Demonstrates thorough knowledge and understanding of the advantages and disadvantages of obtaining information from print sources and people/individuals
    • Competently communicates ideas, issues and opinions in an organised logical and coherent manner, using appropriate terminology



    3-4 Marks
    • Demonstrates a sound knowledge and understanding of the advantages and/or disadvantages of obtaining information from print sources and
    people/individuals
    • Communicates ideas, issues and opinions in a clear and logical way using appropriate terminology



    2 Marks
    • Demonstrates a basic knowledge and understanding of the advantages and/or disadvantages of obtaining information from print sources or people/individuals
    • Communicates ideas and opinions in basic form using some relevant terminology


    1 Mark
    • Makes one relevant point about conducting research



    Question 21

    In better responses, candidates outlined the advantages and disadvantages of both print sources and people/individuals. Ideas were supported with a range of relevant examples. In mid-range responses, candidates outlined some advantages and disadvantages of obtaining information from the print sources and people/individuals, however the examples used, although relevant, were limited.

    In weaker responses, candidates provided some basic knowledge about the advantages and/or disadvantages of obtaining information from print sources or people/individuals.

    Re: Help for CAFS students.

    I think I can greatly improve once I start the course. What do you think my answer would get in terms of Year 10 standards?

    Re: Help for CAFS students.

    I think so as well . In terms of Year 10 standards, probably a band 5 or 6 answer; as you have addressed the question and added relevant examples.

    Re: Help for CAFS students.

    Just an question; have they changed the format of the paper? Because I notice in 2010 there are now 20 multiple choice questions and then followed by short answer questions. Is it going to stay that way?

    I am not really sure about that. It depends on what syllabus content is going to be assessed.

    Re: Help for CAFS students.
