Online Student Declaration and Permission for all Year 12 students
Details of this process are listed below.
The deadline for students to complete this process online is Thursday, 21 June 2018.
All students will need to declare that they are aware of the requirements to achieve the Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE) and for sitting the ATAR course examination. These requirements are listed in the Year 12 Information Handbook which is available on the Authority website at https://www.scsa.wa.edu.au/publications/year-12-information.
When checking this declaration box online one of the requirements is that students have discussed parents. Please refer to the above link for this information.
All Year 12 students are asked to give permission for the following:
(a) Release of their name should they win an award
The School Curriculum and Standards Authority award winners are published in the media and on the Authority’s website if permission to do so has been given by the student.
(b) Use of school work for creating support materials
The Authority is seeking permission for the use of school work produced during 2018, e.g. assignments, projects, portfolios, test, school-based exam responses.
(c) Use of examination responses (written and practical)
The Authority is seeking permission for the use of:
- ATAR course written and practical examination responses (copyright owned by the student); and
- images and sound recordings of the student in photographs, audio recordings and audio visual recordings that are made during the ATAR course practical examinations (copyright owned by the State of Western Australia).
Students are encouraged to discuss each of the above questions with parents prior to completing the student permission. The online procedure has been developed so that students cannot complete the student permission unless they click on ‘Yes’ to ‘I have discussed my responses to the above questions with my parents/guardians’.
Please note: Students will be required to complete the Student Declaration and Permission when they log in to the portal before they can gain access to other important information such as their examination timetable.
