Evidence of learning

All Stage 2 subjects have a school assessment component and an external assessment component.

The following assessment types enable students to demonstrate their learning in Stage 2 English:

School assessment (70%)

  • Assessment Type 1: Responding to Texts (30%)
  • Assessment Type 2: Creating Texts (40%)

External assessment (30%)

  • Assessment Type 3: Comparative Analysis (30%).

For a 20-credit subject, students should provide evidence of their learning through eight assessments, including the external assessment component.

Students complete:

  • three responses to texts
  • four created texts (one of which is a writer’s statement)
  • one comparative analysis.
