Assessment in Science and Technology (Food and Digital Technologies)

The Science and Technology team is committed to supporting students in demonstrating their learning in multiple ways. We use a wide range of assessment strategies designed to give us an ongoing picture of your child's progress.

To help support students in managing their workload and keeping track of summative assessment items we have a term long assessment schedule. This outlines when all assessment tasks are due for each Science / Technology course.

You can support your child by ensuring that they submit all tasks by the due date given on this sheet. All tasks are available through your child's Google Classroom. If you cannot access this platform, cannot find something or have a question please call or email the KLA Executive teacher, Jennifer O'Donoghue, on 6142 1930 or jennifer.o'
