ASSESSMENT AND EXAMINATIONS
The School Curriculum and Standards, Department of Education conducts yearly moderation exercise to validate that the assessment standards applied at Sunway are consistent with that of Western Australian high schools.
It has a balanced assessment approach of 50% school assessment and 50% external examinations.
The school assessment component removes the pressure associated with a single high-stakes end-of-year examination. A variety of assessment methods such as tests, quizzes, assignments, investigations, research, presentation and examinations will develop students as versatile learners.
Officers appointed by the School Curriculum and Standards directly supervise and conduct examinations. Moreover, all external examination scripts are sent to Western Australia for marking.
