welcome to ar3200 Welcome to the Level 3 Sculpture AR3200 course offered by Te Aho o Te Kura Pounamu.

overview of ar3200 NCEA Level 3 Sculpture is made up of three Achievement Standards. Two of these are internally assessed and the portfolio is externally assessed. If you intend to apply for entry to an Art School you will need to contact them directly, as their application requirements vary from institution to institution. Please contact your teacher as soon as you enrol to discuss your requirements, prior learning and starting point for the course. This course can be endorsed with Merit or Excellence if in a single year if you gain 14 or more credits at Merit and/or Excellence within Level 3 Sculpture. At least three of these credits must be from externally assessed standards and three from internally assessed standards.

organising your study

Plan a regular time for study and art practice. Some people learn best from frequent short sessions while others do better with fewer, longer sessions. There is a suggested course plan in the course outline section of this guide to help you plan your programme of study. You may wish to consult with your subject teacher to help you decide on your plan. Getting your study underway is very important. Your first return of work should be two to three weeks after you received your initial work. If you have any issues returning your work within this time, please contact your subject teacher. For more information on how to study successfully, refer to the Student Guide to Years 11–13 (www.tekura.school.nz).

resources you need

Refer to the list in each of the Achievement Standard tasks.

choosing topics and standards

NZQA advises that a one-year course should lead to 18–20 credits. You may only wish to study some topics. For example, you may want to do only internal standards for this course. You should look carefully at the course outline and make your choices. It is important to consider how well this will meet your learning goals (such as gaining enough credits to achieve your NCEA Level 3, or whether you are working towards course endorsement, or meeting the entry requirements for your tertiary course or any future study). The external assessment for NCEA Level 3 Sculpture is a three-panel portfolio due at Te Kura in early November. It is not expected that you would attempt to submit a folio prior to completing work towards an internally assessed Achievement Standard. The portfolio due date is set by NZQA and there are NO extensions.

assessment

Teachers return student work with ongoing formative feedback and advice in preparation for final NCEA internal assessments and external assessment submissions. There are two internally assessed Achievement Standards for this course: •• AS91449 Sculpture 3.2 (AR3202Y1): Use drawing to demonstrate understanding of conventions appropriate to sculpture •• AS91454 Sculpture 3.3 (AR3203Y1): Systematically clarify ideas using drawing informed by established sculpture The detailed criteria for Achievement Standards will be given in the relevant resources. They can also be found by searching the subject and level in the NCEA part of the NZQA website (www. nzqa.govt.nz) and then finding the relevant standard(s).

External assessment preparation includes: •• one or both of the internal Achievement Standards •• AS91459 Sculpture 3.4 (AR3204): Produce a systematic body of work that integrates conventions and regenerates ideas within sculpture practice. (This body of work is produced over several months.)

time commitment

There are three Achievement Standards in this course. Each topic indicates how many study hours it is likely to require. For example, topic AR3202 may take approximately 40 hours of work to complete at the normal pace, representing about eight weeks of work at five hours per week. If you are to achieve at Excellence level, it is likely that you will have to study substantially more than the suggested guideline. Before deciding on the pace of learning, read through this Course and assessment guide and ask yourself the following: •• How much time can I set aside for study each week? •• Will I be attempting both externally and internally assessed standards? •• Will I be able to keep a steady pace of five hours of study each week? •• Do I intend to submit the external portfolio at the end of the year? •• Do I need specific external or internal credits for next year’s study or work?

normal pace of learning

As a guide, expect to do at least five hours work per week in this subject. This means completing one internal Achievement Standard each term so that you have two terms to complete the externally assessed portfolio before November submissions. Alternatively, you may be producing a year-long body of research and practical work that will culminate in an end of year portfolio submission, with the remainder of your work going towards internally assessed standards.

flexible pace of learning

If you have less than a year because you start later or need to finish earlier, you can decide the pace at which you work.

cover sheets

The last page on the topic PDF is the final assessment cover sheet for your work. Print it out, fill it in, sign it and attach it to the front of your work (or send it electronically via email) before sending it back to Te Kura. If applicable, your supervisor also signs the cover sheet as part of our authenticity requirements.

te kura codes

Your course code is: AR3200. AR is the code for Art/Sculpture and 3 refers to Level 3. ‘AR3202Y1’ refers to the final assessment for an Achievement Standard (AR3200) for Sculpture. ‘AS’ is the code for Achievement Standard.

assessment information standards

AR3200 offers credits from Achievement Standards which count towards NCEA Level 3. Please refer to our Student Guide to National Certificates or Te Kura and New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) websites for more information about National Certificates of Educational Achievement and assessment: •• www.nzqa.govt.nz •• www.tekura.school.nz

internal assessment

AR3200 offers two Achievement Standards that are internally assessed. This means that your teacher sets and marks all assessments that count towards credits gained for these standards. The final assessment opportunity for an Achievement Standard is coded ‘Y1’.

external assessment

External assessment means that an external examiner marks your assessment work. This is done by submitting a three-panel portfolio in early November.

authenticity

Authenticity means that students complete and submit work that is their own. When you submit work to Te Kura, you sign an authentication declaration that the work you are submitting is your own work and was done under the required assessment conditions. Where applicable, your supervisor signs to confirm this declaration.

derived grades (compassionate consideration)

If for any unexpected reason you are not able to submit final work towards an external portfolio, you may be eligible for a derived grade. Please refer to the NZQA website for information on this process as soon as possible to find out more should you feel this is necessary.

appeals

You have the right to query an assessment result if you want further clarification or disagree with the result. If you are still not satisfied, you may appeal. Refer to the Student Guide to National Certificates for more information. You can also appeal any other decisions, procedures or policies about assessments. Contact your teacher or Learning advisor if you wish to appeal. Further information and a form that students can use to appeal is available on the school’s website in the Student toolkit area (www.tekura.school.nz and go to Student toolkit).

new zealand scholarship

Students who wish to enter for the NZ Scholarship examinations must discuss this option with their Te Kura subject teacher.
