Moderators will inform Principals in writing of their intended visit at least five working days prior to the visit. The educator should be present during moderation of practical work. Moderators who are also District Facilitators, will be visiting the centres/ schools that they will be moderating as from March each year to provide support, and to ensure that these centres/schools will be ready for the moderation in July/August. Learners are requested to make themselves available on the day of the moderation of the subjects mentioned above. In some instances, learners may be requested to remain after school hours for moderation to be completed. Candidates who are absent for the practical examination/moderation should provide a medical certificate and/or other relevant evidence confirming the reason for absence. This must be forwarded to the District Assistant Director: Examinations within seven days after the completion

of the practical examination/moderation. Candidates who are absent with no valid reason will have incomplete results at the end of the year. 4.7 Every learner must have his/her individual practical project/model. No group work is allowed. Dates and times of the Home Economics, Hotelkeeping & Catering, as well as the Needlework & Clothing practical examinations must be arranged and finalised by educators with the relevant facilitator via their District Offices. The Hotelkeeping & Catering practical examination/moderation should be scheduled during official working hours or by arrangement with the Provincial Moderation Co-ordinator. Schools without workshops and/or facilities for practical assessment and moderation should not be offering subjects with a practical component.

5. 5.1

PROCEDURES FOR THE HANDLING OF MARKSHEETS During July of each year, a computer-generated marksheet will be forwarded to all schools. Subject educators are required to have their draft/practical working marksheets, assessment criteria and breakdown of how the final mark for each learner was calculated. The marks, as given by the educator, should be transferred onto the computer-generated marksheets. The original copy of the computer-generated marksheet must reflect the final practical marks awarded to the learners, their examination numbers, and must be signed by both the educator and the Principal. This should be made available to the moderator during his/her visit to the school. The moderator will moderate the work and, where necessary, adjust the marks on the computer-generated marksheet. The moderator should sign the original copy of the computer-generated marksheet and retain a copy. It is the responsibility of the Principal to submit the original copy of the corrected marksheet to the District Assistant Director: Examinations by the third week of August every year. The Principal must ensure that the District Assistant Examinations acknowledges receipt of marksheets in writing. Director:

Principals are required to keep a copy of all marksheets submitted.

5.8

Principals are also required to discuss the outcome of the moderation with the relevant educator. All candidates, including part-time candidates, must have a practical mark. Candidates will not receive their results if their practical marks are outstanding. A letter of explanation from the Principal of the school should accompany the marksheet in a case where a candidate has left the school during the course of the year. The District Assessment Team Members, Assistant Director: Examinations and FET subject facilitators are responsible to thoroughly check that all schools have submitted their marksheets in all the subjects. The marksheet control list must be used for this purpose before submitting it to the Moderation Section at 40 Juta Street, Braamfontein on the scheduled dates and times as indicated in the Management Plan (Annexure A).

ADULT CENTRES, INCLUDING DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONAL SERVICES, OFFERING TECHNICAL SUBJECTS, HOME ECONOMICS, HOTELKEEPING & CATERING, NEEDLEWORK & CLOTHING AND TRAVEL & TOURISM All part-time candidates who enrol for subjects with a practical component should complete the practical examination. This is the responsibility of the Centre Heads. Heads of adult centres and correctional services must ensure that facilities/resources (workshops, machinery and equipment) for practical examinations are available before offering this subject to learners. Centre Heads who do not adhere to 5.1 and 5.2 will have to take full responsibility, since learners who do not have a practical exam mark will have incomplete results at the end of the year.

6.1

6.3

7.

PROCEDURE FOR APPEAL AFTER PRACTICAL MODERATION

Should the school wish to appeal against a moderation decision, such appeal must be done in writing and sent to the District Assessment Official within three days after receiving the adjusted marks.

8.

DEVELOPMENT OF CASS PORTFOLIO AT SCHOOL LEVEL

For the detailed guidelines relating to the development of school-based CASS portfolios, subject educators must refer to the guidelines for the specific subject e.g. Guidelines for CASS – Woodwork. This must be read in conjunction with the relevant Circular of each year dealing with guidelines for CASS.

English: Page 5 of 26

9. 9.1

TRAVEL & TOURISM Portfolio

The portfolio component (practical component) for Travel & Tourism comprises of the following unit standards:        Basic Calculations – Forex, Time Zones and Timetable Technology for Reservation in Tourism Global Perspective in Tourism International Trends in Eco-tourism Regional Tourist Market 14 day Tour of Southern Africa Work Place Experience

In addition to the above, learners should complete the following unit standards:     SATOUR Fact Files Service Excellence Jargon Interpretation of Graphs and Statistics

The above-mentioned unit standards must be researched, completed and a selection of worksheets, assignments, etc. should be included in the learners’ and educator’s portfolio.

9.2

CASS

The CASS component for Travel & Tourism comprises of the following:   Three controlled tests Preparatory examination

9.3

Moderation

The moderation for the portfolio (practical component) of Travel & Tourism will be handled separately. This will be done simultaneously with the moderation of the CASS component for this subject, during the provincial moderation in October. Details relating to both these aspects are clearly outlined in the Travel & Tourism CASS/portfolio guidelines for each year.

9.4

Computerised Marksheets

Two computerised marksheets are usually issued to all schools and adult centres offering Grade 12 Travel & Tourism. These marksheets are used to record the following:

English: Page 6 of 26

9.4.1

Portfolio/Practical Work All marks achieved with regard to the portfolio/practical component are recorded on this marksheet. Both full-time and part-time learners are required to adhere to this requirement.

9.4.2

CASS Marks achieved in three (3) controlled tests and the preparatory examination are recorded on this marksheet.

Copies of both the portfolio/practical work and CASS marksheet should be included in the educator’s portfolio, which is to be submitted for moderation.

9.5

Working Marksheet

Annexure B of this document is an example of the working marksheet. This should be used by educators throughout the year when recording the marks of the learners. Prior to the provincial moderation in October, marks of the learners that have been recorded on the working marksheet should be transferred to the GDE computerised marksheet for the purpose of provincial moderation. The original copy of the working marksheet must always be kept in the educator’s file. Please Note: Learners who register for Travel & Tourism as part-time candidates are also expected to do the practical work/portfolio. However, these part-time candidates are exempted from doing CASS. No candidate will get final results unless the practical component is completed. It is therefore crucial that both full-time and part-time candidates adhere to this requirement.

10.

CONCLUSION

Directors at District Offices and Principals of schools offering subjects with a practical component must ensure that the moderation process of practical work is carried out successfully.

Districts must ensure that all information are checked and corrected before handing it to Head Office. Copies of all completed and moderated computer-generated marksheets must also be filed at the District Office. The Provincial Practical Moderator may arrange with a school to conduct moderation after 16 August 2006. This arrangement depends on the suitability of dates in the Management Plan of the Provincial Moderator and the school. Any special arrangement with the Moderator to do the practical moderation outside the 20 days allocated for this task should not clash with, or disturb the smooth running of the preliminary examinations.
