Hmm, then where do they records the marks allocated for the questions, if they don't write on the exam papers?

I'm pretty sure they record it on a separate sheet of paper containing the criteria or something. It makes it more convenient to add up as well.

so we don't evenhave to give a reason? sweet

'I request access to document(s) concerning:' - would we just say 'HSC exam scripts for english (advanced), chemistry, ...'?

$30 is really nothing. Should be really sweet to get the actual papers back. Good luck guys with that!

Why would you want unmarked papers back, out of curiosity? I personally just want to move forward :p.

The only thing I'd consider is 'donating' them to the school to use as examples of what the standard of work is for the marks, etc..

or donating to the BOS. And yeah, that's basically the reason. I would do it next year for all my subjects i guess.

I'll try to self-mark mine and give an indication of what raw marks correspond to aligned ones

Each pile of scripts comes with a page which has the centre number at the top and the student numbers listed down the page.

We write our mark/s in little boxes beside the student's number.

As each marker only marks one question for a paper that has 4 questions then there will be 8 such pages, as responses are double marked.

These pages are returned to the clerical staff with the pile of papers and the clerical staff input the marks to the computer through a scanner - no manual adding of marks at all.

The marking criteria is a separate page - which we usually tape to our desks for ease of reference (along with a copy of the question we are marking and even, sometimes, the relevant page from the syllabus - e.g. for Modern History personalities we have the personalities pages so we know what content we should be seeing in response to the question particularly with the lesser done personalities that we mark.)

So a marker when marking a centre of 20 students will have, on their desk, the pile of 20 scripts for that question, a single page for the marks, a separate page for the criteria (not one copy of the criteria for each student), and some other pages if needed. It can get rather crowded at times. There are also two boxes, one marked IN and the other marked OUT. What is in the IN box are the scripts to be marked by that marker and the OUT box is where the marker puts the finished bundle when they have finished that entire bundle.

Yes, that should be fine.

Reasons aren't necessary. You do need to make sure you have identified the specific documents to which you are requesting access. Include your student number.

Deadline for rechecks is 9 January 2009.

The only deadline for FOI applications is the period of time for which they retain your examination scripts. If they have them and you ask for them you [should] get them.

@ some people are still not sure as to whether they should get the papers back or not: Please get the papers so that you can attempt at check for yourself. Then you can help fellow BoSers forming the picture how the aligning procedure works. (even though we know quite well at the moment, extra info will be nice ;) )

ESPECIALLY those who got the band cutoffs, e.g. 80 or 90. or 40.

And if you're not sure how to self mark, then the rest of Bored can help? This doesn't work so much for essays but

hey sorry to bump this, was referred to here by Lazarus when I made another thread.

So if we were sending a FOI off we tick that we want to inspect the original exam booklets or receive a copy of them?

in which case would we be entitle to a 50% rebate?

thanks :)
