Anticipated student response

There are many possible answers. Use the marking guide below to consider the student's response and judge how well they have explained why they have ordered the shots in the way they have chosen.

Keep in mind that you are marking the student's justification for their choices as an aid to telling the story. Look for relevant, clear links rather than for complete sentences, as the space available will induce the student to use note format.
Response level Example student responses
  • The explanation is clear, demonstrating the intent of the shot order to logically progress the intended storyline.
  • It closely links the order of the three shots with the story.
  • Correct camera terms have been used.

Start with close up of the car, then show the dust behind the car so we know that the car is speeding down the road. Third shot shows steep hill where the car is going. Maybe it will crash.
  • The explanation does not clearly demonstrate how the shot order supports the storyline.
  • There is some regard for the link between the plotline and the order of the shots, but the emphasis is uneven and may not cover all three shots.
  • Correct camera terms may have been used.

First the shot of the dust shows speed of the car, then the car going too fast. Last show the road going down hill. Danger!
  • The explanation does not adequately show the link between the story and the order of the shots.
  • It may merely note plot details or loosely link a single shot to an aspect of the story.
  • Correct camera terms may have been used, but this does not improve the overall quality of the explanation.

Car is fast and lots of duts
