Parent Information Session 1

30 March 2016Jan Cuke Deputy Principal


Purpose of Assessment


in the HSC is mainly to:

assist students in their learning

provide information on student achievement and progress in each course

provide evidence that students have satisfactorily completed a course

allow reporting of the standard achieved by each student at the end of a course



What can parents help?

be aware of due dates

keep an up-to-date diary of all their assessment activities and other commitments

start tasks early so that they will have time to ask for help if they need it

break tasks into smaller steps and set themselves deadlines for each step


How can parents help?

frequently save and back up all computer work. Technology failure is generally not an acceptable excuse for submitting work late

keep all their earlier drafts and copies of their resources

keep a copy of everything they submit for marking.


Honesty in HSC

The honesty of students in completing assessment tasks, examinations and submitted works, and of teachers and others in guiding students, strengthens the integrity of the Higher School Certificate. Throughout the assessment process, the highest level of honesty is required.


Honesty in HSC

Dishonest behaviour carried out for the purpose of gaining unfair advantage in the assessment process constitutes malpractice, or cheating. Malpractice in any form, including plagiarism, is unacceptable.


treats allegations of malpractice very seriously and detected malpractice will limit a student’s marks and jeopardise their HSC


Honesty in HSC

Should malpractice be suspected, students will be required to demonstrate that all unacknowledged work is entirely their own. Serious and deliberate acts of malpractice amount to corrupt conduct and, where appropriate,


report matters to the Independent Commission Against Corruption.

In all cases of malpractice a zero mark is likely to be awarded
