Assessment and reporting

A student undertaking Modern History Life Skills will study selected outcomes and content, as identified through the collaborative curriculum planning process. The syllabus outcomes and content form the basis of learning opportunities for students. 

Assessment should provide opportunities for students to demonstrate achievement in relation to the outcomes and to apply their knowledge, understanding and skills to a range of situations or environments, including the school and the wider community. 

Evidence of student achievement of Life Skills outcomes can be based on a range of assessment for learning opportunities. There is no requirement for formal assessment of Life Skills outcomes. Schools are not required to report achievement using the Preliminary Common Grade Scale or assessment marks. 

This information should be read in conjunction with requirements on the Assessment Certification Examination (ACE) website. 

Additional advice is available in the Principles of Assessment for Stage 6.
