Abstract

2009 was the final year of parallel implementation for Mathematical Methods Units 3 and 4 and Mathematical Methods (CAS) Units 3 and 4. From 2006-2009 there was a common technology-free short answer examination that covered the same function, algebra, calculus and probability content for both studies with corresponding expectations for key knowledge and key skills. There was also separate technology-assumed examinations comprising common and different multiple choice and extended response questions. In 2009 the two cohorts were of similar size, comprising 7000-8000 students each. This paper analyses student performance for both cohorts with respect to these common items. (Contains 6 figures.)
