SBQ

Inference
- 2 inferences supported with evidence

Inference with purpose

- 2 inferences supported with evidence (I usually write 1 and it's still okay)
- Purpose of the source [Action verb + Target Audience + Message + Intended impact]

Comparison

- Provenance [S or D]
- Content [S and D]
- Tone [S or D]
- Purpose [S or D]
*Difference in viewpoint (if have)

Reliability
- Provenance
- Content -> Unreliable -> Bias/Propaganda? Purpose [Action verb + Target Audience + Message + Intended impact]
- Cross reference
*Enhanced reliability (if have)

Usefulness
-Provenance
-Content -> Useful because it supports the question.
-> Not useful because limitations - Lack of info.
-Cross reference
*Unreliable but useful (Very important, if have)

Testing Assertion
-State which sources support the question.
-> Content with supported evidences
- State which sources do not support the question.
-> Content with supported evidences
- Cross reference to contextual knowledge/ other sources
-> Show that a not useful/useful source is actually useful/not useful.

Surprised?
- Content -> Use logic or background info to determine if there are any reasons why you should be surprised by the source.
- Cross reference -> Does other sources contradict? If so, you are surprised.
-> Does other sources support? If so, you are not surprised.

Does A shows that B is right?

- Cross reference of A and B. Inference of source B with evidence. Inference of source A with evidence. Supports? Show that it's right. Contradicts? Does not show it's right.
- Cross reference of B (the base source) with other sources. Inference of source B with evidence. Inference of other sources with evidence. Supports? Show that it's right. Contradicts? Does not show it's right.
- Purpose of source A. Does it have a purpose? A motive to alter the facts? Or maybe a reason why it wants to say it? If it has a purpose or an ulterior motive, it most likely isn't genuine and hence DOES NOT SHOW that A is right.



These may differ from what your teachers teach you but oh well, different teachers tackle SBQs differently and we're not sure who's right and who's not eh?
Only for reference and I bear no responsibility for whatever your outcome for "O's is.
Thanks.

Re: SBQ

For Purpose based question. I recommend a easier alternative of remembering. ( Its the same concept like TS stated) *thumbs up* for him.

Purpose.

PAMOS

Where,
P = Purpose , e.g Convince, persuade, reason,
A = Audience , e.g whoever involve, students, public, citizens
M = Message , e.g that it it important to uphold racial harmony
O = Outcome, e.g In order to ensure that everyone lives in harmony and peace with racial tolerance
S = Support "quotations"

Oh yea gosh!
Sorry it's supposed to be tone!
HAHA. Thanks!

Oh anyway the Cambridge examiners once stated in their report that difference/similarity in TONE is rarely applicable for the sources. I don't know why but it's hard to do too, because it's not simply negative, positive, biased, neutral, derogatory, etc etc. Don't try to attempt TONE if you really can't.

Oh okay. But my teacher showed the class a recent Cambridge's report. I think it's for 2009. They say something like the tone thingy is rarely.... Argh. I dunno how to phrase it but they say rarely tone is accepted. So they just skip your paragraph on tone and move on. Not sure about this year. Maybe tone's accepted this time?

cannot be. i tried some past year ss papers. some sources obviously dont have purpose, like those about some comment by a random person on the street. so must use tone instead.

and why would teachers teach us tone if it cant be used anyway?

maybe that report is specifically referring to that 2009 paper.

Tone is not exactly 'rarely applicable' for the sources, although you are right to say that tone is rarely accepted. This is not because the sources do not have any tone whatsoever (Though this seems to be the case most of the time), but markers only accept ONE word to describe the tone of a source.

And according to my teacher, people seldom get the tone correct because there are marked differences between words like negative, emotional, critical for dissidents of an issue, and most of the time people take the easy way out and give a remarkably vague tone like 'negative', 'positive', 'optimistic' ; which is not accepted most of the time.

Did you know there's a difference (albeit subtle) between balanced and objective?

Perhaps you are talking about history. But I dont take history so I dont know if there are any differences.


From the 2005 O Level SBQ "Mark Scheme"
Source: Available for download

L5 Supported valid differences in Tone / Opinion
(i.e. Source B is biased, one-sided; Source C is balanced/objective)
Award 6 marks for support from 1 source only.
Award 7 marks for support from both sources.

e.g. Source B ......

Source C, however, is more balanced in highlighting the need for foreign talent in Singapore and their contribution in injecting new ideas and helping Singaporeans to be more creative and outward-looking, which are crucial to Singapore’s development. Its reminders to give opportunities to local talent are mild and advisory rather than the strong words used in Source B – ‘a sad day’ and ‘they prefer discrimination’. (7m) [6-7]
If the mark scheme is real, then tone was accepted as the highest level answer.

Re: SBQ

In my school, the teachers always ask us to answer Purpose-type questions in this format:

A - Author
A- Audience
C- Context (the reason why the speech was made/the article was written etc.)
M- Message (include evidence by quoting source)
I- Impact (the intended outcome that the author wants to achieve.

A Social Studies SBQ book I've bought a few months ago said that if the purpose question is more than 5 marks, we must cross-refer to other sources.
