Assessment Type 3: Investigation

School assessment Weighting: 25%

The Tourism investigation is assessed by the school and moderated at Stage 2. Teachers select moderation samples and submit materials online by mid-November (Round B).

Students undertake one individual investigation.

The following format is recommended for presentation of the extended response:

  • an introductory statement outlining the tourism trend, development, and/or contemporary issue
  • a summary of the investigation process undertaken
  • analysis, synthesis, and evaluation of primary and secondary sources of information
  • justified conclusions and recommendations
  • appropriate and consistent acknowledgment of sources.

The investigation is a maximum of 1500 words for a written text or a maximum of 10 minutes for an oral presentation, or the equivalent in multimodal form. It should be supported by visual and graphical evidence. Visual and graphical evidence particularly relevant to this assessment type includes maps, graphs, tables, photographs, drawings, charts, statistical data, and/or diagrams.

Student work should be their own. See Supervision and verification of student work.
