Response to the question

In summary, the report is quite poor. The report lists a limited number of technology the student uses. The report states a number of disadvantages, which isn't as technical as this should be. The report lists a number of technology that the student uses, which is quite good for the ones that the student has listed. However the student may have forgotten a number of other technology's, which the student may use. For example, a Mobile Phones is used by the majority of people within the UK.

Level of analysis

The report states 'compared to VHS tapes that had poor quality sound and were bulky.'. However doesn't explained this using detail. For example, the report could mention 'VHS Tapes are quite bulky, and this could cause inconvenience due to the lack of space that is available within an home environment'.

Quality of writing

The report states 'DVD', however this isn't explained. All technical terms should be explained, to allow the examiner to understand the student. As the examiner, may not have an in-depth knowledge of IT.
