VALID Science quick quizzes


The quick quizzes and extended response tasks are all items from past VALID Science tests. The VALID Science quick quizzes can be used to provide teachers with feedback on student progress while providing instant feedback to students.

The extended response quizzes do not auto-mark and will need to be marked by teachers. A marking manual is provided.

They are mapped to NSW science syllabus outcomes from Stage 3 to Stage 5. The quick quizzes are a past short response item set and the extended response tasks are a past extended response set. Each question has been psychometrically validated.

Teachers can group together or modify these short assessments to suit the learning needs of their students. They are easy to administer and available as Microsoft Forms, Google Forms, and PDF. The PDF for the extended response task is included with the marking manual for the extended response.

When using Google Forms or Microsoft Forms for the quick quizzes, the student receives immediate feedback on their answers. Teachers can use this information to inform planning and programming. As teachers mark the extended response, teachers will need to provide feedback once marking is completed.
