Research Project

Creativity and initiative

In the Research Project, students are given the opportunity to study an area of interest in depth.

It requires students to use their creativity and initiative, while developing the research and presentation skills they will need in further study or work. Students choose a research question that is based on an area of interest to them, and then explore and develop one or more capabilities in the context of their research.

The Stage 2 Research Project is a compulsory 10-credit subject. Students must achieve a C–grade or better to complete the subject successfully and gain their SACE.

Assessment of the Research Project involves a folio, research outcome and an external evaluation, all of which enable students to demonstrate their learning in Stage 2.
