Assessment (including Examination) Rules for Schools with Consent to Assess 2014 (EXPIRED)

6.7 Assessment Opportunities for Internal Assessment

  1. Assessment evidence used to award grades needs to be available for verification, and approaches to assessment that involve collection of evidence must be documented.
  2. Where manageable, and after further learning has taken place, candidates may be offered a maximum of one further opportunity for assessment against an assessment standard within a year.
  3. All students, including those who did not complete the original assessment for a reason acceptable under the school's policy on missed and late assessment, must be able to:
    1. access the further opportunity, if they wish, and
    2. use the further opportunity to improve their original grade.
  4. Students must be awarded the higher grade achieved over both opportunities.
  5. A resubmission may be offered when students have made mistakes that they should be capable of discovering and correcting on their own. Where this is not possible, however, a further assessment opportunity may be more appropriate.
  6. A resubmission should be limited to specific aspects of the assessment and no more than one resubmission should be provided per assessment opportunity.
  7. A 'Not Achieved' must be reported for a student who has had an adequate opportunity to be assessed but has failed to avail themselves of this opportunity.
