Chemistry - annotated exemplars

Show: Chemistry homepage

An annotated exemplar is an extract of student evidence, with a commentary, to explain key aspects of the standard. It assists teachers to make assessment judgements at the grade boundaries.

Level 1

  • AS90930 - Carry out a practical chemistry investigation, with direction (1.1)
  • AS90931 - Demonstrate understanding of the chemistry in a technological application (1.2)

Level 2

  • AS91161 - Carry out quantitative analysis (2.1)
  • AS91162 - Carry out procedures to identify ions present in solution (2.2)
  • AS91163 - Demonstrate understanding of the chemistry used in the development of a current technology (2.3)
  • AS91167 - Demonstrate understanding of oxidation-reduction (2.7)

Level 3

  • AS91387 - Carry out an investigation in chemistry involving quantitative analysis (3.1)
  • AS91388 - Demonstrate understanding of spectroscopic data in chemistry (3.2)
  • AS91389 - Demonstrate understanding of chemical processes in the world around us (3.3)
  • AS91393 - Demonstrate understanding of oxidation-reduction processes (3.7)

Trial Exemplars

To further support teachers in identifying the critical aspects of Excellence, NZQA is trialling the publication of an additional exemplar for each Level 3 internal standard for Accounting, Biology and Chemistry. The additional exemplar focuses on the requirements for a secure Excellence, while also identifying why the High Merit exemplar does not meet Excellence.

  • AS91387 - Carry out an investigation in chemistry involving quantitative analysis (3.1)
  • AS91388 - Demonstrate understanding of spectroscopic data in chemistry (3.2)
  • AS91389 - Demonstrate understanding of chemical processes in the world around us (3.3)
  • AS91393 - Demonstrate understanding of oxidation-reduction processes (3.7)
