Students are directly involved in a personal or community activity or social action related to their chosen issue and present their investigation in the form of a written report of a maximum of 1000 words for the 10-credit subject and 2000 words for the 20-credit subject.
The investigation is double graded, firstly by the student’s teacher and secondly by an external assessor appointed by the SACE Board. The teacher and the external assessor make a decision about the quality of the investigation with reference to the performance standards.
The SACE Health Subject Outline includes performance standards, which describe five levels of achievement that are reported with the grades A to E at the student’s completion of the subject.
The school-based assessments and the external assessment will be graded with reference to the performance standards.
