On this page, you will find Electrical 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 Electrical Technology Grade 12 Practical Assessment Tasks
Below is the structure that Grade 12 Electrical Technology students should follow:
Requirements: PAT file with all the evidence of simulations, design and prototyping. A copy of the PAT 2022 cover page. The relevant simulations and assessment sheets should be copied and handed to each learner to include in the file.
