Teachers are required to provide an overall assessment mark for each student. This mark is calculated from a set number of assessment tasks. Assessment for the Year 11 Preliminary Course will be separate to the HSC assessment in Year 12. HSC assessment is to be based primarily on work undertaken in Year 12 however, for some courses, elements from the Preliminary course will be examined in the HSC. Students cannot undertake the HSC course unless they have satisfactorily completed the Preliminary Course.
Students cannot undertake the HSC course unless they have satisfactorily completed the Preliminary course.
At the commencement of Years 11 and 12, you will be given general outlines of all assessment tasks to be completed. A minimum of two weeks notice will be given for the exact date of any assessment or change thereof.
A Central Register will be kept to co-ordinate all assessment tasks.
Students will receive feedback on all tasks once assessed.
Students Absent from Tasks
If you are absent from school on the day an assessment task is due in Years 11 and 12, you will require a Doctor’s certificate or an approved parental letter. Without this, penalties will be applied in accordance with NESA Guidelines resulting in a 10% reduction per day and a zero mark after five (5) days.
If you are absent from school the day before an assessment task is due, you will also require a Doctor’s Certificate or approved parental note. Absence(s) to complete an assessment task are NOT appropriate. Without appropriate documentation, 10% will be deducted from the assessment task weighting, e.g. if an assessment task is worth 30%; 3 marks will be deducted increasing by 10% each school day thereafter.
In addition to a satisfactory completion of assessment tasks, you must also satisfactorily complete the course work for each subject and maintain a satisfactory record of attendance.
