The Science curriculum area is broken down to the following strands for each of the 8 levels. These curriculum assessments are able to be set up for students in Years 0-13, and all strands have the ability to enter a result of ‘early’ and ‘at’. For each year level you can select all curriculum levels and there's no restriction on how many results are entered. To change a result, so long as assessment points have been set up, you can view and edit saved results by selecting "Add/Edit" from an assessment point.
Levels 1-10 Nature of Science is required learning, with the other four strands providing contexts for learning. Students in years 11-13 can specialise in one or more science disciplines, depending on choices offered in your school, eg. education for sustainability, biochemistry, agriculture, electronics or human biology.
