Level 1 Horticulture
Teacher in Charge: Mr M. Dryburgh
What will I learn and how will I learn?
Students will learn about general garden maintenance, germinating seeds, transplanting seedlings, compost management and identification of growing media and common native plants. Students will also learn about livestock management practices.
Conditions of Assessment
NCEA internal assessments allow a flexible approach to the collection of achievement evidence. Therefore, assessment conditions will vary from theoretical assessments, supervised by the teacher, to practical performance assessments. All assessments will be monitored by the subject teacher to ensure authenticity of student work. Specific assessment conditions will be provided for individual achievement standards.
Submitting Internal Assessment
All work for assessment must be submitted to the teacher by the due date. Any work not submitted for assessment by the deadline will receive a ‘Not Achieved’ grade. If students are sick on the day their work is due, they must get a doctor’s certificate. (Read over Student Handbook for full assessment details). APA Referencing must be used if relevant to the task.
Resubmissions and Further Assessment Opportunities
All standards have a resubmission opportunity. Time and pace of learning will dictate whether further assessment opportunities can occur.
