Technical Mathematics Grade 12 Practical Assessment Tasks (PAT) for 2023 and previous years

On this page, you will find Technical Mathematics Grade 12 Practical Assessment Tasks (PAT) for current and previous years (2023, 2022, 2021, 2020, 2019). Memorandums for previous PATs are 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 Technical Mathematics Grade 12 Practical Assessment Tasks

Below is the structure that Grade 12 Technical Mathematics  students should follow:

Administering the PATs

The following documents must be available for all formal tasks:

  • Task instructions explaining the procedures to be followed
  • The worksheets which include questions to be answered under examination conditions o The teacher guidelines with task instructions, worksheets and marking guidelines (The teacher guidelines MUST NOT be released to the learners.)
  • Teachers should compile marking guidelines (memoranda) for the real results of the task conducted (teachers should do the tasks themselves FIRST)
  • The tasks must be done individually.
  • Each learner must record his/her OWN INDIVIDUAL data and observations.
  • Each learner must be provided with his/her OWN worksheet and answer the questions INDIVIDUALLY under examination conditions.
  • Only once all the learners are ready to do the task and they are seated and ready to answer the questions may teachers hand out a worksheet to each learner. Examination conditions have to be applied.
  • If it is not possible to do the task and complete the worksheet on the same day, the teacher must collect the learners’ tasks. These tasks must be kept at school.
