Students investigate local, national, and global tourism, and explore tourism as a business. Students gain an understanding of the complex economic, social, cultural and environmental impacts of tourism.
The 20-credit subject consists of four themes and three topics.
Students demonstrate evidence of their learning through the following assessment types:
The examination (2 hours) consists of a range of questions on a number of sources based on the four themes. Sources could be in many different forms including written materials, media items (e.g. news report, radio interview and newspaper article), quotations, cartoons, graphical information (e.g. maps, photographs, diagrams) and statistical data.
The examination will be graded by external assessors with reference to the performance standards.
The Tourism 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.
