Assessment Type 2: Creating Texts
Students create written, oral, and/or multimodal texts.
For a 10-credit subject, students create at least one text. For a 20-credit subject, students create at least two texts.
The texts may be functional, informational, analytical, imaginative, interpretive, and/or persuasive in purpose.
Students may create texts in a variety of forms. The length of the texts can vary. Some texts may be short, others may be longer; however, no text should be more than 800 words or 5 minutes, or the equivalent in multimodal form.
The texts created could include, but are not limited to:
- a role play in a community or workplace context
- instructions describing a process in either a written, oral, or multimodal form
- a workplace report (e.g. on an accident or recommendation to change a process)
- a series of social media entries advocating for an issue
- an email or vodcast complaining about a product or problem
- a ‘how to’ guide explaining how to use sporting equipment
- a thank-you (e.g. birthday, wedding, or awards night speech)
- a section of a graphic novel
- an advocacy website
- an article on a topic or theme of interest
- an interactive story
- a multimodal presentation creatively presenting a topic, issue, or theme
- a short film trailer
- a creative written narrative
- transformation of a traditional children’s story into a modern setting
