Re-assessment opportunities


  • All achievement standards are internally assessed,There is no external examination

    at the end of the year.  This means that you must be prepared to work hard all year to ensure that you reach your learning goals.  Achieved, achieved with merit and achieved with excellence grades are offered in each achievement standard.

  • There is a significant practical component in the course.It is expected that students will participate to a satisfactory level to reinforce the learning gained in theory-based lessons.Students who do not meet minimum participation levels in the practical activities will not achieve module 1.1 and possibly the associated standards.

  • Students who are not present for an assessment due to sickness, family trauma or a scheduled school activity will be given another opportunity to complete the assessment as per the school’s Assessment Policy. An exception to this is when a practical assessment can only be completed on that day (eg. Cross country).

  • In situations where several assessment opportunities are offered (eg. 1.3 Skill Performance) the student will be awarded the best grade achieved.For example, if a student attains a merit grade in volleyball, an achieved grade in cross country, juggling and ki-o-rahi, their final grade for 1.3 will be a merit as this is the highest grade they gained.

  • There will be an opportunity to re-sit or re-submit an assessment for each compulsory standard provided the student has met set deadlines and the student has made a reasonable attempt in the first assessment opportunity.

  • If assessment work is completed outside of class time, students are to ensure that the completed work is their own.

  • Once an assessment task is completed the student may be given a provisional grade which will be confirmed once internal moderation has taken place.If a student is unhappy with the grade they have been awarded they should discuss this with the classroom teacher in the first instance.If they are still unhappy they may ask the HOD for a review.If the student still feels the awarded grade is unjust, they may appeal to the Principal’s Nominee.Appeal forms may be obtained from the Student Centre.

Students will be encouraged to nominate themselves as a candidate for endorsement with merit or excellence.


Students will keep their notes in a file and their assessment evidence in a portfolio.
