Assessment Type 3: Resource Study
Students complete one resource study, which comprises two parts:
Part 1 – Resource Investigation
Students investigate and analyse the functional characteristics and properties of two or more materials or components they are considering for use in the creation of their solution.
Part 2 – Issue Exploration
Students investigate and analyse ethical, legal, economic and/or sustainability issues related to their solution.
The resource study should be presented in written or multimodal form. It should be up to a maximum of 2000 words if written or the equivalent in multimodal form (where 1000 words is equivalent to 6 minutes)
The following specific features of the assessment design criteria are assessed in the resource study:
- Investigation and Analysis (I1, I2)
- Design Development and Planning (D2)
- Evaluation (E1)
Student work should be their own. All externally assessed investigations must be verified by a teacher. See Supervision and verification of student work.
