Description

The six steps to good research, note taking and presentation the Welly High way.

Research Skills A brief guide

WHY Research Skills? Research is assessed in every subject in the Senior school (Years 11 -13) as part of the Internal component of NCEA. Internal assessments are EASIER to pass. You are allowed to RESUBMIT incorrect work. It is usually worth a large number of credits (9 Credits in Level 3 History). However you are expected to have these skills when you arrive in Year 11. These skills are NOT taught in the senior school.
