Physics 2007 Assessment program audit tool

Assessment program audit tool

For Authority subjects

14835

Physics 2007

The purpose of this audit tool is to enable schools to compare the requirements of their assessment program with the minimum assessment requirements of the syllabus, and to subsequently consider possible amendments to their school work program.

Assessment instruments required in Year 12 (including objectives and dimensions assessed)

Conditions required by the syllabus, e.g. word length, time, genre

School assessment instruments (including objectives and dimensions assessed)

Conditions in school work program

Variations

Refer to syllabus verification and post-verification requirements

Refer to the syllabus assessment section

Refer to the schools approved work program

Refer to the schools approved work program

How does the schools assessment program differ from syllabus requirements?

Verification requirements

A minimum of four instruments and a maximum of six instruments demonstrating a range of techniques including:

at least one, but no more than two, extended experimental investigations

at least one supervised assessment.

With at least one instrument that is derived from a Year 12 contextualised unit.

Syllabus, p. 30

School assessment program

Extended experimental investigation (EEI)

Aspects of all criteria should be evident:

Knowledge and conceptual understanding (KCU)

Investigative processes (IP)

Evaluating and concluding (EC).

Format:

written, spoken or multimodal response that demonstrates aspects of each of the three criteria

written: 10001500 words

spoken: 4-5 minutes

multimodal: 5-7 minutes[footnoteRef:1] [1: Refer to QSA Memo 018/14 for changes to the Chemistry and Physics syllabuses in assessment conditions.]

Syllabus, p. 22

Supervised assessment (SA)

May draw on one, two or three of the following criteria:

Knowledge and conceptual understanding (KCU)

Investigative processes (IP)

Evaluating and concluding (EC)

Short items:

multiple-choice items or short paragraph (up to 50 words)

Practical exercises:

using graphs, tables, diagrams etc.

Paragraph responses:

explanation of greater complexity (between 50 and 150 words)

Response to seen and unseen stimulus material:

extended pieces of writing.

Conditions:

Recommended time: 1.52 hours

Extended response: 600800 words.

Syllabus, p. 24

Extended response task (ERT) (Optional)

Aspects of each of the three criteria should be evident:

Knowledge and conceptual understanding (KCU)

Investigative processes (IP)

Evaluating and concluding (EC).

Format:

written, spoken or multimodal response that demonstrates aspects of each of the three criteria

written: 10001500 words

spoken: 4-5 minutes

multimodal: 5-7 minutes[footnoteRef:2] [2: Refer to QSA Memo 018/14 for changes to the Chemistry and Physics syllabuses in assessment conditions.]

Syllabus, p. 25

Post-verification requirements

At least one instrument from the following:

extended response task

supervised assessment

extended experimental investigation.

It is desirable for the assessment instrument to include all criteria.

Syllabus, p. 31

Summary

Where the schools assessment plan differs from the minimum syllabus requirements, consider:

are these choices the most effective way to gather information about student learning?

what is the rationale behind these school decisions?

what changes could be made to the schools work program?
