Assessment Type 3: Inquiry
Students independently research a contemporary health and wellbeing issue. They develop a question or hypothesis about an issue to investigate and analyse, and make recommendations about the issue. Students use a variety of sources of information from different perspectives to form their conclusions.
The inquiry should be a maximum of 2000 words if written, or a maximum of 12 minutes if in oral or multimodal format.
The following specific features of the assessment design criteria are assessed in the inquiry:
critical thinking – CT1, CT3
reflective practice – RP1, RP2
Student work should be their own. All externally assessed investigations must be verified by a teacher. See Supervision and verification of student work.
Teachers can access student samples for school assessment and external assessment components via PLATO.
