Instrument-specific marking guides (ISMGs)

Teachers will use ISMGs to make judgments about internal (school-based) assessments. Each internal assessment in a syllabus is accompanied by an ISMG.

An ISMG aligns with the assessment objectives and describes the qualities of student work for each internal assessment.

ISMGs identify the relative contribution of each internal assessment to a student’s overall subject result. For example, an assessment worth 35% will be marked out of 35 while an assessment worth 25% will be marked out of 25.

The combination of marks from each of the internal assessments, along with the mark on the external assessment, will produce a maximum subject result of 100.
