2004 Civics and Citizenship school release materials - NAP

8 At the classroom

8 At the classroom level, the test materials can be used to: diagnose individual students’ strengths and weaknesses in terms of their demonstrated skills and understandings in civics and citizenship; ascertain the strengths and weaknesses in civics and citizenship of the class as a whole; help teachers to analyse the effectiveness of their own civics and citizenship teaching and learning strategies; provide models of sound assessment tasks; and moderate individual teachers’ judgements with those of the National Sample Assessment. At the whole-school level, they can be used to: infer levels of student civics and citizenship achievement in the particular State or Territory’s curriculum framework; make comparisons between civics and citizenship performance in the school and the State or Territory mean; make comparisons between the range in civics and citizenship performance in the school and the State or Territory range; report to the school community on students’ achievements in civics and citizenship; report to school authorities on students’ achievements in civics and citizenship; set priorities for school development planning; and provide continuity for students moving from other schools. In using the test materials, it should be borne in mind that: The National Sample Assessment assesses much— but not all— important civics and citizenship knowledge and skills. Test results are one source of information about students’ progress and information from other sources is necessary for accurate assessments to be made. The assessment administration guidelines must be followed carefully.

9 Chapter 3 The School Assessment Booklet The school assessment of civics and citizenship comprises a pencil-andpaper assessment, with 33 multiple-choice and short-answer type questions. The assessment is designed to assess all five proficiency levels (page 15 Table 7.1) and both Key Performance Measures of the national civics and citizenship assessment domain.

Preparing the Assessment Booklet The Year 6 School Assessment Booklet can be found at Appendix 2. It has been formatted to be suitable for printing or copying. When photocopying the test for a class, it is important to ensure that the format displayed in the resources is maintained in the back-to-back mode, with pages 2 and 3 facing one another.
