3 What is Authentic Assessment? Authentic assessment is a special program for students in Year 10 at Kurri Kurri High School. It has been operating every year since This program consists of three steps. 1. An authentic assessment task, project or activity is prepared in each Year 10 subject. It will be a part of the normal classroom learning activities for that subject. These tasks are completed during the year. 2. A portfolio of work is compiled by each student as the tasks are completed and marked by the teacher in each subject. Students also complete sections of this booklet as an extension of the authentic assessment tasks. 3. During Term 4, each student presents his/her work to a panel and discusses the associated learning. This is called the Oral Presentation. Why is Authentic Assessment Important? Authentic assessment encourages students to reflect on their learning as they compile an academic portfolio of their work. This gives students the opportunity to show what they know and can do as a result of their Year 10 learning experience. It helps students to develop decision making and problem solving skills, planning and self discipline, time management and resource management skills and substantive communication skills. Personal reflection is an important part of the authentic assessment program. It assists students to understand how they learn and how best to overcome problems and challenges. By evaluating their tasks, students are able to identify the employment related skills involved and appreciate how they are transferable to learning in other subjects and their preparation to join the workforce. The Portfolio Your portfolio of work will include evidence of your learning from tasks completed in each subject this year. Preparation of a covering letter and completion of this booklet are important parts of the portfolio. The Oral Presentation Each Year 10 student displays and discusses his/her learning to a panel consisting staff, student, parent and community representatives. The oral presentation for minutes allows the student to display samples of his/her learning in each subject and discuss the process, planning and relevance. No great thing is created suddenly 3

4 This commitment is made by. I understand that the Authentic Assessment program is a compulsory part of learning in Year 10 at Kurri Kurri High School. I understand that I will need to complete a portfolio of my work this year. This will include an assessment task, project or learning activity for each of my subjects. I understand that I will also need to complete sections of this booklet and a covering letter/personal resume to complete my learning portfolio. I understand that I will be expected to present my student diary to illustrate my organisation skills, time management, reflection and goal setting. I understand that I will need to manage my time effectively to complete each task and my final portfolio by the due dates. I understand that I will be expected to present my portfolio to a small group of people consisting of a teacher, student, parent/community member and discuss my learning. I make this commitment to produce quality work this year, complete all of my authentic assessment tasks and reflect on my learning and my academic progress. Signed Date.

5 Areas of Assessment in the Oral Presentation You will be awarded a grade by the panel in the oral presentation. This grade will be based on your performance in the following areas of assessment. The quality of your tasks will not be assessed by the panel. These tasks will already have been marked by your class teacher and will have contributed towards your mark for that subject. 1. Personal Presentation: You should prepare yourself for your oral presentation as you would for a job interview. Wear correct school uniform and be neat and tidy. Your speech should be clear and confident. Be expressive and convincing in the words you say. 2. Portfolio Presentation: Your portfolio of work is the basis of your oral presentation. A task or sample of your work for each of your eight subjects this year should be displayed and discussed with the panel. A covering letter should also be prepared and sections of this booklet completed. It is expected that you will use appropriate applications of technology to support your learning. 3. Task Understanding You will be asked to describe some or all of the work you present in your portfolio, discuss the planning and processes involved, resources you used etc. 4. Problem Solving and Reflection As you work on your tasks you may experience some unforseen problems. The panel will ask you to discuss the problems and difficulties you had and what steps you took to overcome them. You might also talk about how you might go about some of your tasks if you were to do them again. This ability to reflect on your learning is a key component of authentic assessment. 5. Transfer of Knowledge and Skills Your learning in each subject does not exist in isolation. The panel will ask you how the knowledge and skills you have learned might also be useful in other subjects and also to your future employment. You should be able to discuss the Employment Related Skills (pages 8&9) for each of your subject tasks. 5
