Credits: 3 Teacher guidelines The following guidelines are supplied to enable teachers to carry out valid and consistent assessment using this internal assessment resource. Teachers need to be very familiar with the outcome being assessed by Achievement Standard Geography 91012. The achievement criteria and the explanatory notes contain information, definitions, and requirements that are crucial when interpreting the standard and assessing students against it. Context/setting This assessment activity requires students to describe the nature of a contemporary geographic issue, describe viewpoints relating to this issue, evaluate courses of action, and make a fully justified recommendation. The context provided is fictional. Woolwear Ltd has given six months’ notice that its one New Zealand factory (in the city of Eastwood) will close and that operations will move to China. This decision affects the local people and has political, economic, and social aspects. The issue may also affect the urban environment if the factory buildings are not sold and are left to decline.
