Research Project


SACE Stage 2

10 credits

Students choose and research a topic based on an area of interest and one or more capabilities (Literacy, Numeracy, Information and Communication Technology Capability, Critical and Creative Thinking, Personal and Social Capability, Ethical Understanding, and Intercultural Understanding). Students use the research framework as a guide to developing their research and applying knowledge and skills specific to their research topic. They create an outcome, evaluate the research processes used and reflect on the relevance of the chosen capability (or capabilities) to themselves and their research project.
