2015 HSC information regarding the certification of projects, submitted works and performances

Updated information about the certification of projects, submitted works and performances that are part of the HSC examination is now available for students, supervising teachers and principals.

The following documents are available at Schools Online in the ‘HSC Practical Certification’ folder in the Memos and Documents section.

  1. Information for Principals and Head Teachers/Coordinators details the responsibilities of the principal and head teacher/coordinator in the certification process.
  2. Information for Supervising Teachers provides guidance and advice on requirements for certification and best practice in monitoring and supervising work in progress. It also contains a pro-forma that can be used to help document the progress of students' work.
  3. The pro-forma for monitoring students’ project work is also published as a Word document so that teachers can modify it to suit their preferred approach. It is a convenient format for maintaining notes on progress at various stages in the development of each student’s project. The following document for students is available on Students Online > Exams > Practical and Performance Exams.
