Physics 2007 Assessment program audit toolAssessment program audit toolFor Authority subjects14835 Physics 2007The 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, genreSchool assessment instruments (including objectives and dimensions assessed)Conditions in school work programVariationsRefer to syllabus verification and post-verification requirementsRefer to the syllabus assessment sectionRefer to the schools approved work programRefer to the schools approved work programHow 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 investigationsat least one supervised assessment.With at least one instrument that is derived from a Year 12 contextualised unit.Syllabus, p. 30School assessment programExtended 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 criteriawritten: 10001500 wordsspoken: 4-5 minutesmultimodal: 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. 22Supervised 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 hoursExtended response: 600800 words.Syllabus, p. 24Extended 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 criteriawritten: 10001500 wordsspoken: 4-5 minutesmultimodal: 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. 25Post-verification requirementsAt least one instrument from the following:extended response tasksupervised assessmentextended experimental investigation.It is desirable for the assessment instrument to include all criteria.Syllabus, p. 31Summary 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?
