12.8. Reporting Student Performance Against Standards

In 30 seconds...

We'll judge how well you do in this HSC course based on how well other people do. Your report will use marks both from your school and from your performance in HSC exams. Your performance will be ranked by bands.
Student performance in an HSC course will be reported against standards on a course report. The course report contains a performance scale for the course describing levels (bands) of achievement, an HSC examination mark and the internal assessment mark. It will also show, graphically, the statewide distribution of examination marks of all students in the course.

Each band on the performance scale (except for band 1) includes descriptions that summarise the attainments typically demonstrated in that band.

The distribution of marks will be determined by students performances against the standards and not scaled to a predetermined pattern of marks.
