Level 3 Physics assessment resources

  Please note:

These resources are guides to effective assessment and should not be used as actual assessment.

These are publicly available resources so educational providers (including teachers and schools) must modify them to ensure that student work is authentic.

Teachers will need to set a different context or topic to be investigated; identify different texts to read or perform; or change figures, measurements or data sources to ensure that students are demonstrating that they can apply what they know and can do.

The Level 3 achievement standards for Physics are registered and have been published on the NZQA website.

Exemplars of student work or expected student responses (written by subject moderators) have been developed for Level 3 achievement standards. The exemplars are on the NZQA Subject Specific Resources pages on the NZQA website and are all available for use.

Assessment resources and exemplars for all Level 3 externally assessed standards have been published on the NZQA website.
