Students apply psychological knowledge to improve outcomes and experiences in various areas of life, such as education, intimate relationships, child rearing, employment and leisure. Students are involved in the collection and analysis of qualitative and quantitative data. They develop skills in analytical and critical thinking, and in making inferences by employing evidence-based procedures.
For the 20-credit subject all topics must be studied.

|Skills and Applications Tasks||40%|
For the 20-credit subject students undertake a 2-hour external examination. The examination consists of short-answer and extended-response questions.
The examination will be graded by external assessors with reference to performance standards.
The Psychology 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.
