QATs for NSW 2020

Papers - NSW

Quality Assessment Tasks (QATs) have your HSC and Year 11 assessment needs covered.

Developed by experienced teachers and writers, they cover the range of assessment materials required across senior secondary subjects including:

  • HSC Assessment tasks
  • HSC Trial Examinations
  • Final Year 11 Examinations
  • Year 11 Assessment Tasks NEW!

All material is published in Word for adaption and editing.


Internal Assessment (editable Word format)

Assessment tasks are ready for classroom use and include the following features:

  • Introduction - identifies the essential elements of the task for students, in relation to components, course outcomes, content, task types and instructions.
  • Task advice - includes relevant source material, questions and marking structure. Material such as newspaper articles, case study descriptions, scenarios and graphics such as flow charts may be included.
  • Teacher advice - includes task management strategies and a mapping grid as appropriate.
  • Solution Pathway - provides teachers and students with a description of a sample response and the basis on which marks for the task/ question are allocated. Answers are both an excellent point of reference for teacher marking and student self-examination of their work.

We recommend that teachers use a variety of assessment tasks to ensure the security and integrity of an assessment program.

Strictly NOT for private tutor use.
