2024 Meet the Markers conference

Meet the Markers of the 2023 HSC Science Examinations

STANSW's annual Meet the Markers event serves as a crucial professional development opportunity for science teachers. Tailored for those who haven't participated in Higher School Certificate examinations marking, the event deepens their understanding of the marking and judging processes. Attendees, including early career teachers entering senior classes and pre-service teachers, find it highly valuable gaining insights and strategies to better prepare students for the exams that lie ahead.
