Preparing our first ATAR Graduates


During the Student Enhancement Program, Year 11 students are preparing for the new ATAR system by learning about Cognitive Verbs.

The Year 11's are analysing the syllabuses for their six subjects and identifying the key Cognitive Verbs in their subjects. In assessment pieces, the Cognitive Verbs provide direction on how to answer the question. For example, compare, discuss, evaluate, explain, justify, prove, solve, identify and so on.

The 2019 Year 11 students are the first cohort who will graduate with an ATAR and this is one of the many ways they are preparing for success in the new system.
