A differentiated exam which was made for QCIA learners who have learning difficulties which prevent them for doing the exam sat by the remainder of the class (https://www.qcaa.qld.edu.au/senior/certificates-and-qualifications/qcia). The Queensland Certificate of Individual Achievement (QCIA) recognises the achievements of students who are on individualised learning programs.
The exam has been tailored to the needs of the learners. It provides a word list of terms encountered in the unit at the front which students can refer to for spelling and prompts when writing their answers. It includes a couple of questions where the students must write their own definitions of key terms and some where they have been provided with the definition and must label the term and provide some examples. It also includes a match the definitions question.
Then there is a question type where students are provided a picture of a person and some information about them which they use to respond to questions about what traits they have, what assumptions people might make about the person’s sexuality and whether it is fair to make assumptions about people based on their appearance. To differentiate, QCIA students are provided with sentence starters to help them answer the questions, the length has also been reduced.
Where possible the stimulus is the same as the exam being sat by mainstream students. Some of the questions have been modified / simplified. This exam contains more short response questions and a cloze passage in lieu of an extended response. Additionally, questions specific to the students QCIA goals have been incorporated.
