Ian Torrie is currently Head of Chemistry at St Cuthberts College in Auckland. Ian was a member of the writing group that recently revised the C2.1 and C2.2 achievement standards, in accordance with the expectations of the MoE, and wrote the accompanying assessment exemplars.
During mid 2019 Team sciPAD were excited to bring sciPAD talks dotted around the country where participants were able to be guided through the new Chemistry 2.1 standard utilising the ‘take home’ teaching programme and assessment task.
Ian has also helped update the content and assessment tasks for 2.1 and 2.2 in the Level 2 Chemistry sciPAD.
The handouts and tasks that Ian talks about are available via SCENZ (Secondary Chemistry Educators New Zealand).
