## What the teacher knows about Darren's attainment in Ma4

Using a tally chart, Darren records data accurately. He represents the data on a bar chart, but requires assistance with choice of scale and setting it out on the axes. He extracts information from simple tables, bar charts and pictograms, provided it is a one-step interpretation. Darren is able to identify the mode of a set of data.
