New school-based assessment requirements, and new sample assessment schedules, for all Stage 6 Languages courses are now available.
The review of school-based assessment requirements in these courses does not require amendments to the current syllabuses or impact on current course HSC Examination Specifications.
Implementation of new school-based assessment requirements for all Stage 6 Languages courses will commence with Year 11 from Term 1 2018, and Year 12 from Term 4 2018.
The new requirements reflect the Stronger HSC Standards reforms and provide a consistent approach to school-based assessment for all Stage 6 courses.
New requirements for all Stage 6 courses include:
- mandatory components and weightings for both Year 11 and Year 12 courses
- a cap on the number of formal assessment tasks to three in Year 11 and four in Year 12
- a cap on the number of formal written examination tasks that mimic the HSC examination to one per course, with a maximum weighting of 30% for the Year 12 course.
Further information regarding Principles of Assessment for Stage 6 and the background to changes to Stage 6 assessment is available on the NESA website.
