Year 8 Assessments Term 1

Term 1 Assessments

Here are the assessments, ordered by the week that they are due. Classroom teachers will give the specific date due as well as explain the task in greater detail in class. 

All subject areas will also be assessing students on a lesson to lesson basis in a variety of ways. This may include students’ classwork, interaction and skills.

All students study a Mandatory Technology course in Years 7 and 8 during which they rotate through eight different TAS subjects, one each term.  Students should do the assessment task for the TAS subject they are currently doing.
