The Drug Talk assessment task(s) have been developed to complement the Western Australian Year 10 Health and Physical Education (HPE) Syllabus. Where possible, a cross-curricula approach has been adopted.
The Year 10 assessment task(s) support the content included in Drug Talk so that informed decisions about students’ progress and achievement can be made with authentic assessment data. As endorsed by School Curriculum and Standards Authority (SCSA) the marking key:
- helps to ensure a consistent interpretation of the criteria that guide teacher's judgement
- provides the basis for feedback to students
- enables the fair and valid ranking of student achievement.
Educators are encouraged to modify the assessment task(s) and marking key as required to address the learning needs of their students.
