The theory of the subject matter as summarised by you is appropriate for the subject matter or work role, but it does not form an overall view. You describe and distinguish essential concepts. You outline a development project. You find a partial solution to the problem but are unable to illustrate the results. Matters are discussed by you in a list-like and summarising manner. Your independent thinking is lacking.
You apply theory within the subject matter, limited from the perspective of the subject matter or work role. You have selected and defined the essential concepts. You design a development project. You find a partial solution to the problem. You illustrate the results. The examples demonstrate your understanding and your independent thinking, but the connections between theoretical knowledge and the examples are insufficient.
