On this page, you will find Civil Technology Grade 12 Practical Assessment Tasks (PAT) for current and previous years (2022, 2021, 2020, 2019). Memorandums for previous PATs are also included where possible.

Why PATs are Important for Grade 12

A practical assessment task (PAT) is a compulsory component of the final promotion mark for all candidates offering subjects that have a practical component and counts 25% (100 marks) of the end-of-year examination mark. The PAT is implemented across the first three terms of the school year. This is broken down into different phases or a series of smaller activities that make up the PAT. The PAT allows for learners to be assessed on a regular basis during the school year and it also allows for the assessment of skills that cannot be assessed in a written format, e.g. test or examination. It is therefore important that schools ensure that all learners complete the practical assessment tasks within the stipulated period to ensure that learners are resulted at the end of the school year. The planning and execution of the PAT differ from subject to subject.

The Structure of Civil Technology Grade 12 Practical Assessment Tasks

Below is the structure that Grade 12 Civil Technology  students should follow:

The PAT accounts for the skills the learner has mastered. The PAT is assessed at intervals and requires the learner to engage in multiple practical sessions. During these weekly sessions, skills such as simulation, experimentation, hand skills, tool skills, machine skills and workshop practice are honed and perfected to the point where the learner may engage in the tasks set out for that particular term. The PAT accounts for 25% of the learner’s promotion mark.
