2016 Task for September Moderation – Biology

Posted By

UPDATED 26/8/16


A sample from a common midyear question focussing on Criterion 8 is being distributed to teachers to mark before the meeting. It will be sent via email (if teachers were at the March moderation meeting) and teachers are asked to return their marks in the grid provided to Angela Vaughan ( ) before the September meeting. For those who weren’t at the March meeting or who haven’t received the samples via email, the samples and grid are attached below.


The attached questions addressing Criterion 8 were provided via dropbox to Biology teachers who attended the March moderation meeting to incorporate into their teaching this year.

Teachers attending in September who have taught and assessed this by the meeting are asked to bring along multiple copies of anonymised student samples across a range of achievement standards (including borderline decisions where available). A possible set of solutions is also provided (see attachment).

In addition – resources from BIOTA on immunology will be shared at the meeting.
