QCAR Science Essential Learnings and Standards

The resources on this page support planning within and across year levels for the Science key learning area.

Essential Learnings

Components of the Essential Learnings

The following resources are designed to help planners map the components of the Essential Learnings across year-level junctures. These components are the Learning and assessment focus (L&AF), Ways of working (WoW) and Knowledge and understanding (K&U).

The assessable elements and descriptors of quality (AEDs) are used to link to the Essential Learnings and Standards, and help teachers make judgments about student achievements.
