Year 11 Academic Physical Education is recommended for students who successfully participated in the year 10 Sports Science programme at Rosmini College. In this subject we combine both practical and theoretical experiences to have students possess knowledge which enables them to follow the subject through Years 12 and 13. Although physical stimulation is of high priority to us, students who enrol should understand that there is a large focus on the completion of theoretical work. This is an interesting and exciting course which develops both intellect and character.

Level 1 Academic Physical Education: 24 credits internally assessed.

Prerequisite for Year 11 - successful completion of Year 10 Sports Science highly recommended.

NCEA LEVEL ONE

Each subject is divided into a number of Achievement Standards and or Unit Standards and each of these is worth up to six credits.  (See the report for the standards and credits in each subject).

To get an NCEA Level One and Two Certificate a student needs to gain at least 80 credits at any level.

GRADES

Your son’s achievements will be recorded as follows:

E       Achieved with Excellence
M      Achieved with Merit
A       Achieved
N       Not Achieved

A/ AM / AE all receive the number of credits allocated to that achievement standard.

LITERACY and NUMERACY

To pass NCEA level one a student must gain at least 10 credits that measure literacy and 10 credits that gain numeracy.  These credits can be from either unit standards or achievement standards but not a mix of both.  These credits can be gained from a number of subjects in addition to English and Mathematics.  See the individual subject guides for a list of subjects that offer literacy and numeracy credits.

INTERNAL and EXTERNAL ASSESSMENT

Some standards are assessed internally and others externally.

Internal assessment means that the assessment task he does is carried out in school when the teaching for that achievement standard has been finished.  Internal assessment tasks are marked by teachers at this school and the marking standard is checked by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority.

External assessment

  • An examination is sat at the end of the year, along with all other students in New Zealand studying this subject.
  • Work carried out during the whole year is submitted at the end of the year to NZQA for marking.

For example, the externally assessed achievement standards in Mathematics and English are assessed by an exam whereas the externally assessed achievement standards for Art and Technology are assessed by the submission of work to NZQA.  Any grade awarded by the school for External Standards is merely a guide to a student’s progress.

ASSESSMENT OPPORTUNITIES

If your son did not manage to achieve the required standard to attain credit he might be allowed to have another go.

  • Only some achievement standards offer another assessment opportunity.  Your son’s course information sheet for the subject will tell you this.
  • It is possible to achieve the standard with merit or excellence on another assessment opportunity.

NB In standards based assessment the results are not scaled.

MERIT & EXCELLENCE CERTIFICATES

If your son gains 50 or more credits (both internal or external) merit or excellence level they will be awarded a NZQA merit or excellence certificate

MERIT & EXCELLENCE SUBJECT ENDORSEMENTS

Your son can gain a Merit or Excellence in an individual subject if he gains 14 or more credits in that subject at Merit or Excellence level.  At least one of these standards in which he gains those credits must be external and internal.
