School assessment

Students should approach the assessment tasks by responding to big questions, deconstructing concepts, and applying discipline knowledge to make informed responses. They identify and describe legal issues, interrogate primary and secondary sources, explore information and data, analyse, and evaluate to make decisions or propose recommendations.

The school assessment component for Stage 1 Legal Studies consists of three assessment types:

  • Assessment Type 1: Analytical Response
  • Assessment Type 2: Inquiry
  • Assessment Type 3: Presentation.
