VALID Assessment Year 10

(Validation of Assessment 4 Learning and Individual Development)

On Tuesday 6th September in Periods 1 & 2, Year 10 will attempt the VALID Science assessment.  VALID Information 2016  was sent to parents of Year 10 recently. It is an online assessment where students view videos and other stimulus material. They will answer 3 extended response questions and a number of multiple choice, sequencing, or mix and match type questions.

Students will be tested on:

  • Knowledge and understanding of  Stage 5 science (years 9 &10)
  • Understanding and skills in the process of scientific investigation
  • Ability to evaluate evidence, make judgments and think critically
  • Ability to access information and communicate scientific ideas using a variety of strategies.

As the task contributes to yearly assessment, attendance is mandatory. If a student is absent or their performance is affected by illness or misadventure, she must complete the online Illness/misadventure form and submit it to the Learning Office.

If you have any questions about the task contact the student’s class teacher or contact learning@loretonh.nsw.edu.au
