During 2017, current school-based assessment components and weightings will be amended to reflect the Stronger HSC Standards reforms for assessment including:
- - mandated components and weightings for Year 11 and Year 12
- - a maximum of three formal assessment tasks in Year 11 and four formal assessment tasks in Year 12.
- Further information about the proposed amendments and opportunities to provide feedback will be available soon. Revised school-based assessment components and weightings and sample assessment schedules for Year 11 and Year 12 will be published in July for implementation with Year 11 in 2018 and Year 12 in 2019.
