Moderation sample selection

Teachers select the moderation sample of school-assessed materials to submit to the SACE Board.

For more information see Online submission of materials.

Supervision and verification

Refer to the information in Supervision and Verification of Students' Work: Policy and Procedures [DOC 90KB] on the use of the record sheet [DOC 164KB] to record and authenticate each student's work. If used, these sheets are to be kept in the school until the end of the clerical check period in February 2022.

A teacher who is unable to verify that the work is the student's own must initiate a breach of rules action through the school's SACE/NTCET coordinator.

External assessment component

Students undertake one personal endeavour assessment for both a 10-credit subject and a 20-credit subject.

The personal endeavour is likely to be a research-based or practical-based investigation, or a combination of these.

It is recommended that students present the personal endeavour in two parts:

  • an investigation that is either research or practical-based and has an outcome or conclusion (about three-quarters of the total evidence)
  • an explanation of the connections between their area of interest and the capability selected (about one-quarter of the the total evidence).

Multimodal evidence is encouraged.

Refer to the subject outline for details of the personal endeavour requirements.

Submitting materials for external assessment

External assessment materials for Stage 2 Integrated Learning will be submitted for online marking using investigation results sheets in Schools Online.
For more information see Online submission of materials.

Assessment Type 3: Personal Endeavour

This assessment type is categorised as an investigation for operational purposes.

Investigation materials for Integrated Learning are submitted online.

The teacher assesses each student's personal endeavour and then submits all personal endeavours for the class to the SACE Board for external assessment.

Supervision and verification

Refer to Supervision and Verification of Students' Work: Policy and Procedures [DOC 90KB]. Teachers must use the record sheet [DOC 164KB] to record and authenticate each student's work. These sheets are to be kept in the school until the end of the clerical check period in February 2022.

A teacher who is unable to verify that a project, or part of a project, is the student's own work must submit a completed report of potential breach of rules [DOC 108KB] to the SACE Board, through the school's SACE/NTCET coordinator.
