Student work extract

Student 1 (PDF, 18KB)

For Excellence, the student needs to write Latin sentences of medium complexity that demonstrate thorough understanding of Latin.

This involves:

  • using linguistic knowledge of complex inflections, structures and vocabulary to produce Latin sentences in linguistically suitable formats
  • communicating the meaning and detail in almost all the sentences correctly in Latin
  • writing sentences that are unambiguous and easy to understand.

This student has used linguistic knowledge of complex inflections e.g. ineunte (4), structures such as gerundive of purpose (1), future passive infinitive (6) and vocabulary  (5) to produce sentences in a linguistically suitable format.

The meaning and detail in almost all the sentences have been correctly communicated. The sentences are unambiguous and easy to understand.

For a more secure Excellence, the student could correct errors of inflection. For example veritus (2) should be verita, and victura esset (3) should be vinceretur.

  • communicating the meaning and detail of most of the sentences correctly in Latin.

Student 6 (PDF, 18KB)

For Achieved, the student needs to write Latin sentences of medium complexity that demonstrate understanding of Latin.

This involves using linguistic knowledge of inflections, structures and vocabulary to produce Latin sentences in linguistically suitable formats.

This student has used knowledge of inflections e.g. advenit (4), intravit (7), and vocabulary to select mainly correct words. An attempt has been made to produce Latin sentences in linguistically suitable formats.

Although the sentences can be understood they are not sufficiently correct to meet the requirements of New Zealand Curriculum Level 7.

To reach Achieved, the student could use correct inflections. For example, missi (1), should be misi, and illo (6) should be illa. The structures ut...revenietis (2) should be ut… reveniatis, vobisnon inscientis (3) should be vobis inscientibus, and ut…videt (5) should be ut videret.

Some NZC Level 7 structures must be used. For example, a gerundive of purpose ad me videndam instead of a final clause (5).
