Research Project B

SACE Stage 2

10 credits

Students choose and research a topic based on an area of interest or passion. They develop a research question and learn about their topic through a range of primary and secondary research processes. Students also show evidence of development of skills and capabilities in a folio that demonstrates their planning and research development.

This leads to showcasing their newfound knowledge and understanding in the format of their choice. Here, students have an opportunity to be creative and present their work in a way that displays their strengths and that is well suited to their topic and target audience. Students then reflect on and evaluate the effectiveness of their decisions and processes used, as well as the quality of their products.
