Assessment Type 1: Performance Portfolio (40%)

In this assessment type, students present a performance portfolio of one or more recorded full-length performance or production works for a live audience, totalling a maximum of 10 minutes.

Performances may be presented as part of a small or larger group. Each student is required to perform in a solo, duo, trio or small group for 1 minute to ensure the contribution of the student submitting the portfolio is clearly evident.

For this assessment type, students provide evidence of their learning primarily in relation to the following assessment design criteria:

  • understanding dance
  • creating dance.
