Assessment Type 1: Practical Investigations
The Nutrition practical investigations assessment type is assessed by the school and moderated at Stage 2. Teachers select moderation samples and submit materials online.
Students complete two tasks:
- one design practical investigation
- one investigation with a focus on science as a human endeavor
For the design practical investigation students produce an individual report. The report should be a maximum of 1500 words if written, or a maximum of 6 minutes for an oral presentation, or the equivalent in multimodal form.
Based on their investigation students prepare a scientific report, which must include the use of scientific terminology. This report should be a maximum of 1500 words if written, or a maximum of 9 minutes for an oral presentation, or the equivalent in multimodal form.
Student work should be their own. See Supervision and verification of student work.
