Good afternoon all :) 

I hope your day is going well. Please can anyone help me? 

I just passed the open assessment exam, so now I am on Part B. Thing is, I downloaded all the syllibus, command word guidance and all other IPD guidance.. the command word APPRAISE is not in any of it...

However, it is mentioned in EVALUATE - "determine the value or character of something by careful appraisal" 

Now I am flapping big time! Please advise, if I get the command wrong, then I get the whole question wrong. 

Thanks in advance all :)

As I understand it, if the verb in the question doesn't appear in the list of command words, you should interpret it as it's normal definition, or in other words as it is commonly understood, dictionary definition etc.

Hi Nikkino,

To my way of reading how you have shown evaluate, it looks like appraisal is part of the definition rather than an addition 'command' word.   A quick look at online dictionaries and thesaurus for either evaluate or appraisal with give the other.

Hi, 

I would have thought it would just be that, my confusion is they have capitalised the word APPRAISE like it is a command word, which is what has totally thrown me off. I am treating it as evaluate now. 

Thanks for your guidance, it has been a great help. :)
