Stage 2 | Assessment Type 1: Investigations Folio
Assessment Type 1: Investigations Folio
Students undertake at least two practical investigations and one investigation with a focus on science as a human endeavour.
For each investigation, students present an individual report.
Evidence of deconstruction (where applicable) should outline the deconstruction process, the method designed as most appropriate, and a justification of the plan of action, to a maximum of 4 sides of an A4 page. This evidence must be attached to the practical report.
The report should be a maximum of 1500 words (for the sections specified) if written, or a maximum of 10 minutes for an oral presentation, or the equivalent in multimodal form.
Science as a Human Endeavour Investigation
Students investigate a contemporary example of how science interacts with society. Students select and explore a recent discovery, innovation, issue, or advance linked to one of the topics in Stage 2 Biology. They analyse and synthesise information from different sources to explain the science relevant to the focus of their investigation, show its connections to science as a human endeavour, and develop a conclusion.
The report should be a maximum of 1500 words if written, or a maximum of 10 minutes for an oral presentation, or the equivalent in multimodal form.
Student work should be their own. See Supervision and verification of student work.
