HSC: All My Own Work is a program designed to help HSC students follow the principles and practices of good scholarship. This includes understanding, valuing and using ethical practices when locating and using information as part of their HSC studies.
Students who have completed the program will also know about penalties for cheating and how to avoid malpractice when preparing their work for assessment.
To be eligible for the HSC, students must complete HSC: All My Own Work (or its equivalent) before they submit any work for Preliminary (Year 11) or HSC (Year 12) courses, unless they are only entered for Year 11 and Year 12 Life Skills courses.
The program is flexible to deliver and schools will organise when students will study and complete it. There are five modules. Begin with Scholarship Principles and Practices first and the remaining in the order of preference. Each module includes information, scenarios, strategies, recommended resources and a quiz.
At Wyndham College, each module should be completed by students individually online. Students may seek help from the Teacher Librarian during study periods if needed. The program may be completed in the Library on the computers that are available to students during study periods, or independently at home. Read these instructions for more information.
Type your full name in to the quiz box for each module before starting, then take a photo of each results screen with your mark included. You can then email the five images in one email as attachments to email@example.com or otherwise save and print your results then hand them to Careers staff at the top of D Block near the kitchens..

The criteria for satisfactory completion of the program are similar to the criteria for satisfactory completion of a Preliminary or HSC course.
A student is considered to have satisfactorily completed the program if, in the principal's view, there is sufficient evidence that the student has:
- systematically addressed the content covered by the program
- applied themselves with diligence and sustained effort to the set tasks and experiences provided in the program by the school
- achieved some or all of the program outcomes.
- provided evidence that the course has been completed.
As with decisions about satisfactory completion of a course, the professional judgement of principals and teachers is a key element in decisions about a student's satisfactory completion of the program.
Principals will certify a student’s completion of the program via Schools Online when confirming Preliminary and HSC entries for their school.
