Aligning is setting a particular cut-off and then matching a linear scale of marks to that cut-off.A raw mark in the final HSC exam undergoes many changes before it reaches
a final aligned exam mark. Firstly, each subject’s marks are changed according to any
varying difficulties in option questions or prescribed texts. For example, in Advanced English
Module B, Hamlet may align better than Speeches (ie. a 13/20 in Hamlet may be “equal” to
a 16/20 in Speeches). These marks become the TWM (Total Weighted Mark) or what is
written down the bottom of a results check to be the “Raw Examination Mark.”
From the database.
Oh okayAligning is setting a particular cut-off and then matching a linear scale of marks to that cut-off.
Scaling is the comparison of cohorts to make an even playing field essentially.
Now option topics have their marks altered by comparison with the cohorts of the other option topics. So scaling.
Also raw mark database was written by just a regular user on here like you or me, it might not necessarily be correct with definitions like this.
The industrial questions weren't too bad. However there was a lot of room to lose marks on the 7 marker in my opinion, and a few others would be hard to get full marks on.Yeah okay thanks. I don't know really anyone else who does it so kinda no clue of what others thought of it. How were the industrial questions?
What'd you write for the above question?The industrial questions weren't too bad. However there was a lot of room to lose marks on the 7 marker in my opinion, and a few others would be hard to get full marks on.
Depends on your internal mark too, but yes you would get 90 as your external mark.So if you get a raw mark of 75 and that's the cut off, for a band 6 what final mark do you get. Is it 90?
96-97.What would you get if you got 90 raw?
