The assessment is delivered online and has three components:

  • Common component: 24 questions answered online by all students
  • Student-choice component: 2 long-answer questions answered on paper. These questions stem out of the information and work the student will have completed in the common component. Students get to pick 2 of 4 possible questions, based on their interest, and take their analysis deeper.
  • Self-reflection component: answered online (not marked)
