IASTA are currently undertaking a survey of members on the practical assessment component of Leaving Certificate Agricultural Science, specifically with the view to making any necessary changes or alterations on the introduction of the new syllabus. While ultimately it will be the State Examinations Commission that will decide on the nature of the practical component, IASTA members’ views on the practical component will be brought to the Agricultural Science syllabus committee when it convenes again in January. For this reason we ask that you complete the survey linked below. It should take no more than 10 minutes of your time but will provide invaluable feedback from teachers of Agricultural Science. Liam Coyle, the IASTA representative on the syllabus committee will bring the results of the survey to the next meeting in January. We ask that you complete the survey as soon as possible.
