    Meet learning requirements of
  • new Australian Curriculum
  • International Baccalaureate (IB)
  • Extended Investigations (Student-initiated)

The new Australian Curriculum is being progressively implemented throughout Australia. It requires students to take an increasingly active role in considering safety and risks in investigations. In Years 11 and 12, students are required to carry out risk assessments of experiments that they design themselves (Inquiry Skill). Read more about the requirements of the new Australian Curriculum for Science. Schools teaching the IB or extended investigations already have the same requirement.

Easy classroom or home use

Student RiskAssess can be used in the classroom on laptops, iPads, tablets and on smart phones (iPhones, Android, etc). Students and staff can access Student RiskAssess from home or from any location with an internet connection. Unlimited numbers of students and staff can access Student RiskAssess at the same time.

PIN-protection allows student assessment

Student RiskAssess includes an optional PIN feature on each risk assessment. This allows a student to create a risk assessment that is PIN-protected and can only be viewed by staff and that particular student. Thus, teachers can use Student RiskAssess for student evaluation. See the Student RiskAssess user guide for more details.

Simple to use

Student RiskAssess is user-friendly and includes online help screens. A User Guide for Student RiskAssess contains simple explanations and tips. Over 70,000 risk assessments have been performed in Student RiskAssess.

The cost of a year's subscription to Student RiskAssess is $300 (plus sales tax) per school campus. This is in addition to the cost of a subscription to staff RiskAssess. A subscription lasts 365 days from the date that payment is received and includes all upgrades during that period. Once you subscribe to Student RiskAssess, you can easily migrate your risk assessments from a trial to your subscription. Student RiskAssess has a different login and password to RiskAssess for Staff, so that students do not have access to risk assessments created in RiskAssess for Staff by teachers and laboratory technicians.
