  • 2005 hsc syllabus exam structure modified 2010

    1. 1. SOR I SOR II
    2. 2. HSC External Examination Specifications Studies of Religion I
    3. 3. Studies of Religion I
    4. 4. Studies of Religion I The external examination provides a measure of student achievement in a range of syllabus outcomes that can be reliably measured in an examination setting.
    5. 5. Studies of Religion I The external examination provides a measure of student achievement in a range of syllabus outcomes that can be reliably measured in an examination setting. The external examination and its marking and reporting relate to syllabus standards by:
    6. 6. Studies of Religion I The external examination provides a measure of student achievement in a range of syllabus outcomes that can be reliably measured in an examination setting. The external examination and its marking and reporting relate to syllabus standards by: ► providing clear links to syllabus outcomes
    7. 7. Studies of Religion I The external examination provides a measure of student achievement in a range of syllabus outcomes that can be reliably measured in an examination setting. The external examination and its marking and reporting relate to syllabus standards by: ► providing clear links to syllabus outcomes ► enabling students to demonstrate the levels of achievement
    8. 8. Studies of Religion I The external examination provides a measure of student achievement in a range of syllabus outcomes that can be reliably measured in an examination setting. The external examination and its marking and reporting relate to syllabus standards by: ► providing clear links to syllabus outcomes ► enabling students to demonstrate the levels of achievement ► outlined in the course performance scale applying marking guidelines based on established criteria.
    9. 9. The syllabus on p 37 states the aim of SOR is to 'develop a comprehensive view of religious traditions and the link this has on the life of adherents' Given the changes to the HSC exam in 2009 and the current exam structure changes for 2010, it is (in my opinion) VERY important to note the above point in relation to exam question structure. 4
    10. 10. Section I: Religion and Belief Systems in Australia post-1945 15 marks
    11. 11. Section I: Religion and Belief Systems in Australia post-1945 15 marks ►This section is comprised of ‘objective response’ questions and one short-answer question.
    12. 12. Section I: Religion and Belief Systems in Australia post-1945 15 marks ►This section is comprised of ‘objective response’ questions and one short-answer question. ►Questions may be based on stimulus material. Stimulus Material may be used for more than 1 question. (M/ C and Short Answer)
    13. 13.

Stimulus Material may be used for more than 1 question. (M/ C and Short Answer) ►All questions are compulsory.
    14. 14. Added information NOTE: Objective Response Questions ►An objective response question is a style of question that requires no ‘detail’ or ‘explanation’. ►Usually Multiple Choice but a Board Officer (in a phone conversation (17/6/2010) has indicated that in the future, Objective Response Questions could also take the form of True/False, ‘Line up the correct answers’ etc. She confirmed that the 2010 HSC will be Multiple Choice.
    15. 15. Added information ►NOTE: Numbering system of Multiple Choice for SOR I/II is as follows; 1-10= M/C 11= Short Answer 12-21=M/C (SOR II ONLY) 22= Short Answer (SOR II ONLY) ►M/C will be answered on two answer sheets ►Short answer response sheet is in the exam paper itself (~3/4 page of writing)
    16. 16. Section II: Religious Tradition Depth Study 15 marks
    17. 17. Section II: Religious Tradition Depth Study 15 marks ►There will be five questions, each from a different religious tradition.
    18. 18. Section II: Religious Tradition Depth Study 15 marks ►There will be five questions, each from a different religious tradition. ►Each question is worth 15 marks.
    19. 19. Section II: Religious Tradition Depth Study 15 marks ►There will be five questions, each from a different religious tradition. ►Each question is worth 15 marks. ►Each question will be in three non-dependent parts. NB: CHANGE IN 2010- No ‘Maximum Mark’ per part i.e used to be a max. of 6 marks per part- NO LONGER THE CASE! CAREFUL USING PAST PAPERS AS A SAMPLE
    20. 20. Section II: Religious Tradition Depth Study 15 marks ►There will be five questions, each from a different religious tradition. ►Each question is worth 15 marks. ►Each question will be in three non-dependent parts. NB: CHANGE IN 2010- No ‘Maximum Mark’ per part i.e used to be a max. of 6 marks per part- NO LONGER THE CASE!

    21. 21. Section II: Religious Tradition Depth Study 15 marks ►There will be five questions, each from a different religious tradition. ►Each question is worth 15 marks. ►Each question will be in three non-dependent parts. NB: CHANGE IN 2010- No ‘Maximum Mark’ per part i.e used to be a max. of 6 marks per part- NO LONGER THE CASE! CAREFUL USING PAST PAPERS AS A SAMPLE ►Students will complete ONE question from Section II. (SOR I students only) ►2010-EXPECTED LENGTH OF RESPONSE= 600 words/4 pages
    22. 22. Analysis of BOS Examples ►Analysis of BOS samples for Section II indicate the following: 1) Minimum of 3 (?) 2) .: Maximum of 9 Questions can be independent of each other (ie a/b/c follow the syllabus of personality/ethics/ritual) or The questions can be dependent upon each other. i.e two questions from the same syllabus point or all three questions from the same point 9
    23. 23. Independent Parts Sample HSC Questions for Studies of Religion I and II Section II – Religious Tradition Depth Study Example 1 (15 marks) – question with non-dependent parts (a) Outline ONE significant practice within Christianity drawn from the 3 following: • Baptism • Marriage ceremony Ritual • Saturday/Sunday worship (b) Explain how Christian ethical teachings, in ONE of the following areas, 6 reflect Christian beliefs. • bioethics • environmental ethics Ethics • sexual ethics Personality (c) Evaluate the contribution of ONE significant person OR school of thought, 6 other than Jesus, to the development and expression of Christian beliefs. 10
    24. 24. 2 Dependent Parts Sample HSC Questions for Studies of Religion I and II Section II Example 3 (15 marks) – question containing some dependent parts (a) Outline ONE significant practice within Judaism drawn from the following: 3 • death and mourning • marriage • Synagogue services Ritual (b) (i) Describe how the ethical teachings of Judaism apply in ONE of the 5 following areas: • bioethics • environmental ethics Ethics • sexual ethics Ethics (ii) Explain how the ethical teachings described in (b)(i) express the diverse 7 nature of Judaism. 11

    26. 26. NOTE ►Ifyou know your syllabus, only the Ritual section allows for 3 Dependent Parts (Describe/Demonstrate/Analyse) ►The other two sections (Personality and Ethics) are: Personality-Explain and Analyse Ethics-Describe and Explain ►BUT...this doesnt mean the Board won’t/can’t ask a 3 dependent part question for Personality/Ethics……… (impact on life of adherents point from start) 13

    38. 38. ►Students are highly encouraged to look at both the 2009 HSC paper and the sample HSC questions (released 2010) to see what the questions *could* look like structure wise as its apparent that the Board is moving away from the 2007/2008 HSC style questions that are drawn ‘directly’ from the syllabus 18

    88. 88. Considerations ►Choice of Religious Tradition for Sections II and Section III ►Preparation for the unexpected Questions B & C from same syllabus area!
    89. 89. Other points raised ► (limited) Range of terms used in syllabus not indicative of what may be used in HSC i.e can use other terms as opposed to those used in syllabus ►Stimulus Material- have to reference to - not a “distracter” but actually a resource that can be used in answering your question/s. ►Section II- note range of marks (can now exceed 6/ section)
    90. 90. ►Peace question (SOR II)= “extended response” .: same style as /20 question ►Section II and III- there will be an “administration check” after the papers have been marked to ensure correct religions have been done (i.e have not done the same one 2/3 times!) - take the best mark of similar questions as your mark /35 or /50
    91. 91. ►Rubric= no mention of “religious traditions” but you have to use them WHERE APPROPRIATE i.e don’t force yourself to mention them if not applicable ►Significant Aspects ►Use of language and terminology ►Presents ideas clearly and is well structured
    92. 92. ►Can double dip in some areas (Sect II and into Sect III) i.e concept of asking the same thing ‘twice’ (/15 then in /20) .: have to be prepared for the unexpected .: knowledge of syllabus is a good thing!
    93. 93. “00” Vs “0” ►Major difference now between a non-serious attempt and just getting it ‘wrong’ Marking criteria has no zero grade as such .: MUST ATTEMPT EVERYTHING- don’t leave gaps as marks are there to be given.
    94. 94. Expected lengths? ►Now stated as 600 words/4 exam booklet pages for /15 and 800 words/6 exam booklet pages /20 ►NOTE: 1.8 minutes per mark so this should also be a guide for lengths etc
    95. 95. The 2009 HSC ►NB- The ‘traditional structure’ of the questions changed in the 20 mark section. “And it came to pass, when he had sat down with them to meat, he took the1 bread and blessed; and breaking it he gave to them. 31And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight. 32And they said one to another, Was not our heart burning within us, while he spake to us in the way, while he opened to us the scriptures?” (Luke 24:30-32) With reference to Luke’s post-resurrection account in the quotation, assess Christianity as a living religious tradition in the life of its adherents. 47
