Assessment Type 2: Skills and Applications Tasks

School assessment Weighting: 40%

The Biology skills and applications tasks assessment type is assessed by the school and moderated at Stage 2. Teachers select moderation samples and submit materials online by mid-November (Round B).

Students undertake at least three skills and applications tasks. Students may undertake more than three skills and applications tasks within the maximum number of assessments allowed in the school assessment component, but at least three should be under the direct supervision of the teacher. The supervised setting should be appropriate to the task. Each supervised task should be a maximum of 90 minutes of class time, excluding reading time.

Student work should be their own. See Supervision and verification of student work.
