Classroom-Based Assessments are the occasions when the teacher assesses the students in the specific assessment(s) that are set out in the subject or short course specification. Junior cycle short courses will have one Classroom-Based Assessment.


Classroom-Based Assessment: My personal profile

This Classroom-Based Assessment is a personal profile which outlines the progress made by students throughout the course. An earlier personal profile should be completed prior to the student commencing the Keeping well, looking good, being great short course. A second personal profile should then be created when the course has been completed.

The personal profiles provide an opportunity for students to reflect on what they have learned and the changes they have taken to develop a positive outlook on their physical, emotional and mental wellbeing. The title is open to wide interpretation and may include any format or mix of formats (photographic/video evidence, questionnaire, interview, role-play etc.) which allows the student to demonstrate their achievements in relation to knowledge learned and skills developed.
