A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

Assessment

Learning Outcome 5:The learner will be able to collect, summarise, display and critically analyse data in order to draw conclusions and make predictions, and to interpret and determine chance variation.

Assessment Standard 5.9: We know this when the learner lists possible outcomes for simple experiments (including tossing a coin, rolling a die, and spinning a spinner);
