HIGHER SCHOOL CERTIFICATE - An assessment guide for students and parents - My MLC School Portal
INTRODUCTION
    Welcome to your final year of secondary schooling in NSW.
    This guide is for students presenting for the HSC at MLC School, and is designed to provide students and
    parents with sufficient information so that they are able to:
        MM Plan and make adequate provisions for their HSC workload
        MM Understand the school’s rules regarding assessment
        MM Know the responsibilities of the students and school in preparing for the HSC examinations and
           assessments.
    Students studying a HSC course must make a genuine attempt to complete the course requirements. These
    requirements include students applying themselves with diligence and sustained effort to the set tasks and
    experiences provided in the course by the school, regardless of whether or not these tasks contribute to the
    final assessment mark. It is a matter of the teacher’s professional judgment to determine whether a student has
    made a genuine attempt to complete these requirements.
    Individual departments supplement these guidelines with details relating to specific components, task criteria
    and advice about the nature and completion of tasks.
    If the spirit of assessment is adopted, it should ease the students’ preparation for achieving their HSC.
    MLC School wishes to see each student be successful and achieve what they aspire to. I look forward to
    working with parents and students to realise this aim.

    Director of Senior Curriculum and International Baccalaureate Diploma Coordinator

ASSESSMENT IN THE HSC
You have certain rights and responsibilities when it comes to HSC assessments during Year 12.

You have the right:
    MM To be informed about the assessment policies of the school and the NSW Education Standards
       Authority
    MM To receive clear guidelines relating to the requirements of each assessment task
    MM To be told the due date for each assessment task at least 11 days in advance
    MM To receive feedback that assists you to review your work
    MM To query the marking for an individual task at the time it is returned to you

You also have the following responsibilities:
    MM To become familiar with, and follow the assessment requirements set by the school
    MM To complete all tasks on time
    MM Not to engage in behaviour which could be considered cheating or malpractice, including plagiarism
    MM To ensure that all assessment work is your own or acknowledge the contribution of others
    MM To follow up any concerns you have with tasks at the time they are marked and returned

                                                                                        HSC Assessment Guide 2018   3
HIGHER SCHOOL CERTIFICATE - An assessment guide for students and parents - My MLC School Portal
THE NATURE AND PURPOSE OF ASSESSMENT

    Assessment is the process of identifying, gathering and interpreting information about student achievement.
    Assessment is used to:
        MM Assist student learning
        MM Evaluate and improve teaching and learning programs
        MM Provide information on student learning and progress in a course in relation to the syllabus outcomes
        MM Report on the achievement of each student at the end of a course
    The assessment program provides a summative measure of a student’s achievement in each course, based on:
        MM A wider range of syllabus outcomes than may be measured by examination alone
        MM Multiple measures and observations made throughout the year rather than a single assessment event
    HSC assessment tasks are linked to standards and focus on outcomes. They may include tests, essays, research
    assignments, interviews, fieldwork studies, reports, model making, oral reports, research projects, practical tests
    and open-ended investigations, viva voce, original compositions, portfolios and presentations of performance.
    Each task enables teachers to collect information about student achievement in relation to a number of
    outcomes, to award marks in accordance with marking guidelines, and to provide constructive feedback to
    students on their performances highlighting their strengths and where they can make improvements. The marks
    awarded for each task will be commensurate with the quality of the response.
    HSC assessment rules are put in place to ensure that assessment tasks are:
        MM Valid – the task assesses the components it is designed to assess
        MM Reliable – the task correctly measures the differences in ability between students
        MM Fair and equitable – no student is advantaged or disadvantaged over another student
    If an assessment task fails to meet these criteria it is deemed to be invalid. Invalid tasks are those, which
    do not function as required, or where there are problems with administration and it is possible one student
    may be advantaged or disadvantaged over other candidates. Alternative tasks must be set if a task has been
    compromised and is deemed to be invalid. The Assessment Committee will determine if a task is invalid, and
    the reduced weight of the invalid task, which will be no less than 1%. Students must be given adequate
    notification and time to complete a replacement task.

    ASSESSING ACTUAL PERFORMANCE, NOT POTENTIAL PERFORMANCE

    Teachers must assess actual performance, not potential performance. Marking guidelines must clearly link
    marks to the outcomes being assessed and use the full range of marks, ensuring correlation between marks
    and the quality of responses. Assessment marks are not modified to take in to account the possible effects
    of illness or domestic situations. In exceptional circumstances schools offer substitute tasks or, in very rare
    situations if students have valid reasons for not completing individual tasks and a substitute task cannot be
    administered, estimates based on other tasks may be awarded. Attendance and application are not taken into
    account in either the final assessment mark or in any individual assessment task.

DISABILITY PROVISIONS

Alternative assessment strategies may be used for students with special education needs. Disability provisions
for assessment tasks may also be granted upon application to the NSW Education Standards Authority at the
end of the Preliminary course. Please see the Director of Senior Curriculum for more information. Supporting
documention cannot be older than October 2017

ASSESSMENT NOTIFICATION

Assessment notifications will be placed on the Year 12 HSC Assessment Learning Management System (LMS)
and will include a description of the task, its scope, form, timing, duration, outcomes to be assessed and the
marking guidelines/criteria. This will be at least 11 days before the task. Your teacher will also explain the task
to you.

IF YOU ARE ABSENT FROM SCHOOL WHEN ASSESSMENT INFORMATION IS
GIVEN OUT

Assessment notifications are placed in the school’s LMS. If you are absent when assessment information is
given out it is your responsibility to locate and read this information when you return. You should also seek
clarification about the task from your teacher.

PROCEDURES FOR SUBMITTING ASSESSMENT TASKS

Assessment tasks must be submitted by the student on the due date and time, as specified on the assessment
notification. The Director of Senior Curriculum is the only person authorised to give a student an extension for
an assessment task.

IF YOU ARE ABSENT ON THE DAY OF SUBMISSION OF AN ASSESSMENT TASK

Students who are absent on the day the task is due must make arrangements for the task to be delivered or
emailed to the school by 9am on the due date and get a valid medical certificate supporting their absence.
Extensions will not be granted for HSC assessment tasks, except under rare and exceptional circumstances.
If you have an illness or misadventure that prevents you from submitting a task on the due date, you must
contact the Director of Senior Curriculum well before the task is due.
If you do not submit a task on the due date and provide no valid explanation, you will lose 10% of marks for
one day late, 50% for two days late and 100% for three or more days late. The weekend counts as two days.
Failure of technology does not constitute a valid misadventure. You must factor the potential for equipment
failure into your planning and always back up your work.

                                                                                              HSC Assessment Guide 2018   5
IF YOU ARE ABSENT ON THE DAY OF AN ASSESSMENT TASK: ILLNESS AND
    MISADVENTURE PROVISIONS

    A student who is absent, due to illness or misadventure, from an assessment task must:
        MM Ensure that a parent contacts the Director of Senior Curriculum by 8.30am
        MM See a doctor or other health professional on the day of the task or the night before and get a valid
           medical certificate
        MM Bring the medical certificate or other form of documentary evidence (eg. police report) to the Director
           of Senior Curriculum on the day you return to school, explaining the absence
    A student who is absent for an assessment task with no valid reason will score zero for that task.

    SUBSTITUTE TASKS

    If you are absent from an assessment task, you will complete the task or a substitute task as soon as possible
    after your return to school. You should be prepared to complete the task on the day of return unless notified of
    a different arrangement.
    Advance notice to the Director of Senior Curriculum is required if you know you will be absent on the day of an
    assessment task. Only in rare and exceptional circumstances would a student be permitted to be absent for a
    task when not ill and only with the prior permission from the Director of Senior Curriculum.

    ILLNESS/MISADVENTURE DURING A TASK

    If you are ill but still complete the task, the following procedures should be followed.
    If you feel that illness or misadventure on the day of the task, or immediately prior to, have prevented you from
    performing as you otherwise would have, you should:
        MM Notify the supervising teacher that you are feeling unwell and ask them to notify the Director of Senior
           Curriculum or alternatively notify the Director of Senior Curriculum yourself prior to the commencement
           of the task
        MM Go to the doctor after the task on the same day and get a medical certificate
        MM Bring the medical certificate or other documentation to the Studies Office and ask to speak to the
           Director of Senior Curriculum to explain
        MM Once a task has been completed by a student it must be marked against the marking criteria and no
           allowance for the possible effects of illness/misadventure can be taken into account during the marking
           process
        MM All reported illness/misadventure claims are considered prior to the assessment marks being sent to
           the NSW Education Standards Authority and students are notified by email of the outcome in late
           September

6   MLC School
NOTES ABOUT MEDICAL CERTIFICATES

    MM Medical certificates are to be written by a healthcare professional.
    MM The certificate must be written on the day of, or the days prior to the missed task, and make clear that
       the doctor’s recommendation is that the student is too ill to complete the task or her illness was likely
       to have affected her performance during the task.
    MM The certificate must not be provided by a relative of the student.

IN THE EVENT OF LONG TERM ILLNESS

Students who return to school after a prolonged illness and who have missed assessment tasks will be assessed
with modified or substitute tasks as soon as possible. The Director of Senior Curriculum will assist in the
rescheduling of tasks in such cases.

SPECIAL LEAVE/EXEMPTIONS

Students should not apply for Special Leave during Year 12. A family holiday or travel plans are generally not
appropriate reasons for leave. If in doubt, a student should consult the Director of Senior Curriculum.
If leave is necessary due to exceptional circumstances, parents should write to the Deputy Principal, Frances
Booth, requesting leave, at least two weeks prior to the event. The letter should refer to any specific task or
tasks that will be missed as a result of the leave. If leave is granted, the student is to complete or submit the
task(s) prior to the leave, before the rest of the cohort.
The effect of this type of leave on a student’s performance in an assessment task does not constitute a reason
for a misadventure in these circumstances.

CRITERIA FOR SATISFACTORILY COMPLETING A COURSE

A student will be considered to have satisfactorily completed a course for the HSC if they have:
    MM Followed the course developed or endorsed by the NSW Education Standards Authority
    MM Applied herself with diligence and sustained effort to the set tasks and experiences provided in the
       course by the school
    MM Achieved some or all of the course outcomes
Students must make a genuine attempt at all assessment tasks.
Students must have completed the majority, if not all of their assessment tasks as scheduled, to be eligible for
an academic prize.

                                                                                             HSC Assessment Guide 2018   7
UNSATISFACTORY COMPLETION – ‘N’ DETERMINATIONS AND A WORD ABOUT
    ATTENDANCE

    Student attendance at school is a legal requirement. It is also a predictor of strong academic engagement and
    performance. Satisfactory completion of a course can be judged by a number of factors, including attendance,
    level of involvement in class, assignments and tasks completed, and level of achievement. The school may
    determine that, as a result of prolonged or intermittent absence, the course completion criteria may not be met.
    If this is the case, students will be given early warning of the consequences of such absences.
    Warning letters will relate the student’s absence to the non-completion of course requirements. Failure to
    meet one or more of the requirements above may lead to an ‘N’ or ‘Non-completion’ determination. If a
    student fails to complete assessment or class work, the school may issue an official warning letter that will
    provide clear instructions about what is required to satisfy these requirements. Should a student decide not to
    respond to two warning letters, then the school may apply to the NSW Education Standards Authority for an ‘N’
    determination for the course.

ACADEMIC HONESTY IN YEAR 12: PROCEDURES RELATING TO MALPRACTICE

Academic honesty is very important in all aspects of life and is an essential part of academic research. All
work presented in assessment tasks must be your own or must be acknowledged appropriately. Malpractice,
including plagiarism, could lead to a student receiving zero marks.
Malpractice is any activity that allows students to gain an unfair advantage over other students. It includes, but
is not limited to:
    MM Copying someone else’s work in part or in whole, and presenting it as your own
    MM Using material directly from books, journals, CDs or the internet without reference to the source
    MM Building on the ideas of another person without reference to the source
    MM Buying, stealing or borrowing another person’s work and presenting it as your own
    MM Submitting work to which another person, such as a parent, coach or subject expert, has
       contributed substantially
    MM Using words, ideas, designs or the workmanship of others in practical and performance tasks without
       appropriate acknowledgement
    MM Paying someone to write or prepare material
    MM Breaching school examination rules
    MM Using non-approved aids during an assessment task
    MM Contriving false explanations to explain why work was not handed in by the due date
    MM Assisting another student to engage in malpractice
Unfortunately, some people try to cheat because they feel under pressure. They may be under pressure because
they are trying to achieve unrealistic academic goals. It is important to speak to your parents and teachers if
you feel this kind of pressure. Some people cheat because they do not understand the seriousness of what
they are doing and tell themselves it does not matter. Some people cheat accidentally because they do not
understand what plagiarism is.
Seek assistance from your teacher or the teacher librarians if you do not understand how to complete the
research required for a task.
In the case of suspected plagiarism, students will be required to provide evidence that all unacknowledged
work is entirely their own. Such evidence might include, but is not limited to:
    MM Providing evidence of and explaining the process of their work, which might include diaries, journals or
       notes, working plans or sketches, and progressive drafts to show the development of their ideas
    MM Answering questions regarding the assessment task, examination or submitted work under
       investigation, to demonstrate their knowledge, understanding and skills
The school’s Assessment Committee investigates cases of suspected malpractice and determines the
appropriate action if the malpractice is proven. The school will ensure that allegations are investigated and
confidentiality will be maintained at all times.
What are the possible consequences of malpractice?
    MM Loss of marks for partial Academic Dishonesty
    MM Zero marks awarded for the task
    MM Possible ineligibility for the HSC in a course
All suspected cases of academic malpractice must be reported to the NSW Education
Standards Authority.

                                                                                            HSC Assessment Guide 2018   9
HOW CAN STUDENTS AVOID ACADEMIC MALPRACTICE?

     In the case of long term projects, students are advised to:
         MM Discuss their work with their teacher and make a note of these meetings
         MM Keep a record book or journal
         MM Keep records of proposals and drafts
         MM Not change their topic/question/investigation without discussion with their teacher
     For all submitted tasks, students must:
         MM Seek the assistance of the teacher librarians from the start about how to reference
         MM Use turnitin before the final submission so errors in referencing may be picked up

     FEEDBACK GIVEN TO STUDENTS ON THEIR PERFORMANCE IN
     ASSESSMENT TASKS

     For each task, students will receive:
         MM Meaningful and constructive feedback, designed to assist them improve their performance, linked to
            the specific outcomes and making criteria addressed by the task
         MM Feedback provided in a timely manner, ie. before the next task notice is given
         MM Information about performance relative to the school group, ie. rank
     The Director of Senior Curriculum has the discretion to make rulings about assessment in special cases or
     extenuating circumstances.

     CAN I APPEAL AGAINST THE MARKING OF AN ASSESSMENT?

     Students with concerns about assessment tasks would first contact the Head of Department. If the Head of
     Department and the student cannot resolve the issue, it will be referred to the Director of Senior Curriculum.
     If a student is still not satisfied the Director of Senior Curriculum will arrange for the School Assessment
     Committee to make a final decision.

     WHO IS ON THE ASSESSMENT COMMITTEE AND WHAT IS THEIR ROLE?

     The Assessment Committee may consist of the Principal, the Deputy Principal, the Head of Senior School,
     the Director of Senior Curriculum, and the Head of Department relevant to the assessment task, as required.
     The Assessment Committee investigates issues of concern about assessments that have not yet been resolved.
     Their main role is to ensure that the school has fulfilled the aims of HSC assessment and followed the school’s
     policy and procedures accurately. Decisions made by the Assessment Committee will be final for the school,
     however students have the right of appeal to the NSW Education Standards Authority at the end of the course,
     if they feel that the NSW Education Standards Authority guidelines have not been followed.

10   MLC School
HOW DO I KNOW MY CORRECT MARKS HAVE BEEN SENT TO NESA?

Students will be given the opportunity to check the accurate recording of their assessment marks in September.
If they believe an error has been made they must be able to produce the original task with marks. Students may
access their final rank in each course after the final HSC examination.

WHAT ABOUT VET COURSES?

    MM Students must notify their class teacher if they are absent for a competency assessment who will
       arrange an alternative time to complete the task.
    MM Work placement is compulsory and not negotiable. If a student is absent during work placement they
       must notify their employer and the VET Coordinator.
    MM If a student is on work placement when another course has a scheduled assessment task, the student
       must notify the relevant Head of Department at least 10 days prior to the assessment date to make
       suitable arrangements.
    MM If any student has an essential commitment during work placement, which would mean they miss part
       of the work placement, they must speak to the VET Coordinator prior to work placement commencing.
       Approval is at the discretion of the VET Coordinator and may be refused.

                                STUDENT CHECKLIST
               Students must ensure they understand or know where to find the following
               information:
                   OO   The rules governing HSC examinations
                   OO   The times and dates of their final examinations
                   OO   The due dates for assessments
                   OO   The school policy on school based assessment
                   OO   The due dates for submission of major works
                   OO   The school’s policy and procedures for illness and misadventure
                   OO   All requirements for Academic Honesty
               The school is responsible for ensuring all NSW Education Standards Authority
               regulations are adhered to. Students and parents must fully understand and be
               prepared to work within these regulations.

                                                                                          HSC Assessment Guide 2018   11
