If part "A" of the FRQ asked for three examples, then three were tallied to the total. If "Identify and explain" was asked, then it is placed in the "high-order" category and "identify" family.

Example: Identify & Explain, Identify & Compare, Identify using a Map, are all included in the "Identify" family.
