Students are required to complete school-based assessment tasks for the HSC courses studied. This assessment counts for 50% of your overall mark in each course and is reported on the Higher School Certificate Record of Achievement. School-based assessment tasks are designed to measure performance in a wider range of objectives than may be tested in an examination. Assessment tasks may include tests, written or oral assignments, practical activities, fieldwork and projects.
