Chemistry - annotated exemplars

Show: Chemistry homepage

An annotated exemplar is an extract of student evidence, with a commentary, to explain key aspects of the standard. It assists teachers to make assessment judgements at the grade boundaries.

The material in these exemplars cannot be used (either in part or in full) for internal or external assessments submitted for any form of grading.

Level 1

  • AS90930 - Carry out a practical chemistry investigation, with direction (1.1)
  • AS90931 - Demonstrate understanding of the chemistry in a technological application (1.2)

Level 2

  • AS91163 - Demonstrate understanding of the chemistry used in the development of a current technology (2.3)
  • AS91167 - Demonstrate understanding of oxidation-reduction (2.7)
  • AS91910 - Carry out a practical investigation into a substance present in a consumer product using quantitative analysis (2.1)
  • AS91911 - Carry out an investigation into chemical species present in a sample using qualitative analysis (2.2)

Level 3

  • AS91387 - Carry out an investigation in chemistry involving quantitative analysis (3.1)
  • AS91388 - Demonstrate understanding of spectroscopic data in chemistry (3.2)
  • AS91389 - Demonstrate understanding of chemical processes in the world around us (3.3)
  • AS91393 - Demonstrate understanding of oxidation-reduction processes (3.7)

Trial Exemplars

To further support teachers in identifying the critical aspects of Excellence, NZQA is trialling the publication of an additional exemplar for each Level 3 internal standard for Accounting, Biology and Chemistry. The additional exemplar focuses on the requirements for a secure Excellence, while also identifying why the High Merit exemplar does not meet Excellence.

  • AS91387 - Carry out an investigation in chemistry involving quantitative analysis (3.1)
  • AS91388 - Demonstrate understanding of spectroscopic data in chemistry (3.2)
  • AS91389 - Demonstrate understanding of chemical processes in the world around us (3.3)
  • AS91393 - Demonstrate understanding of oxidation-reduction processes (3.7)
