Assessment schedule: Latin 91510 How true?

Evidence/Judgements for Achievement

Evidence/Judgements for Achievement with Merit

Evidence/Judgements for Achievement with Excellence

The student has analysed the influence of Latin text(s) on subsequent culture(s).

The student uses linguistic and cultural knowledge to break down the Latin text(s) and to identify and explore particular points, connections, inferences, themes, ideas, and/or attitudes, and how they link from the past to subsequent cultures. Resources are used to support the analysis.

Example (excerpt from a possible answer):

Joan of Arc was a well-documented, historical figure. The film The Passion of Joan of Arc painted her as a victim, though this was not apparent in the Latin manuscript. According to the Latin text, Joan of Arc had rejected marriage for a military life, wearing men’s clothing (a point that the judges kept questioning her about). Her life, consequently, became very different from an ordinary woman’s, but she seemed happy to choose it. She left the court of Robert de Baudricourt for the king’s court wearing men’s clothing. In the film she was depicted in a non-sexual way with short hair and wearing men’s dress. She preferred to call herself ‘la Pucelle’ (the Maid) instead of Jeanne. She carried into battle a white standard with a world depicted on it.

The examples above relate to only part of what is required, and are just indicative.


The student has analysed clearly the influence of Latin text(s) on subsequent culture(s).

The student uses linguistic and cultural knowledge to break down the Latin text(s) and to expand unambiguously in English on particular selected points, connections, inferences, themes, ideas, and/or attitudes and how they link from the past to subsequent cultures. Resources are used to support the analysis.

Example (excerpt from a possible answer):

Joan of Arc was a well-documented, historical figure whose trial is recorded in Latin. The film The Passion of Joan of Arc painted her as a victim, though this was not apparent in the Latin condemnation of her. She was a victim in a man’s world and in the court of law she lacked legal representation and this was clear in the film. According to the Latin text, Joan of Arc had rejected marriage for a military life, wearing men’s clothing (a point that the judges kept questioning her about). Her life, consequently, became very different from an ordinary woman’s, but she seemed happy to choose it, obeying, as she believed, the voices she heard. She seems to have annoyed her parents, especially her father, by rejecting the marriage plans arranged for her, and as a peasant girl to have travelled to the court of Robert de Baudricourt and presented herself there. It was from this court that she later left for the king’s court wearing men’s clothing (more suitable, she said, when amongst men) and indeed necessary for her military role as she understood it. In the film she was depicted in a non-sexual way with short hair and wearing men’s dress. She preferred to call herself ‘la Pucelle’ (the Maid) instead of Jeanne. She carried into battle a white standard of a world flanked by angels that bore the words JESUS MARIA on its side. This standard can be clearly seen carried by Leelee Sobieski in the mini-series Joan of Arc.

The examples above relate to only part of what is required, and are just indicative.


The student has analysed thoroughly the influence of Latin text(s) on subsequent culture(s).

The student uses linguistic and cultural knowledge to break down the Latin text(s) and to fully expand on particular selected points, connections, inferences, themes, ideas, and/or attitudes and how they link from the past to subsequent cultures. Latin references and/or quotations are used from resources to support the analysis. The Latin evidence used is unambiguous and has an English explanation.



Example (excerpt from a possible answer):

Joan of Arc was a well-documented, historical figure whose trial is recorded in Latin. She has been a source of inspiration ever since. From the Latin text we cannot wholly understand her or know her emotions, but we can certainly pity and admire her. The film The Passion of Joan of Arc painted her as a victim, though this attitude towards her was not apparent in the Latin manuscript, which painted and condemned her as a witch. According to the Latin text, Joan of Arc had rejected marriage for a military life, wearing men’s clothing (a point that the judges kept questioning her about). Her life, consequently, became very different from an ordinary woman’s, but she seemed happy (sola contenta) to choose it, obeying, as she believed, the voices she heard that came from God or angels.

She must have been very strong-willed with a firm faith in her voices both to have annoyed her parents, especially her father, by rejecting the marriage plans arranged for her, and as a peasant girl to have travelled to the court of Robert de Baudricourt and presented herself there. It was from this court that she later left for the king’s court wearing men’s clothing (more suitable, she said, when amongst men) and indeed necessary for her military role as she understood it. She was armed with the sword whose whereabouts had been revealed to her by her voices (item dicit quod habebat unum ensem quem cepit ... et scivit ipsum ibi esse per voces XVIII. Februarii. quarta sessio). In the film she was depicted in a non-sexual way with short hair and wearing men’s dress. She preferred to call herself ‘la Pucelle’ (the Maid) (quaedam mulier vulgariter dicta Johanna La Pucelle XXI. Februarii. prima sessio publica) instead of Jeanne.

Joan of Arc did not like killing anyone but carried into battle a white standard of a world flanked by angels that bore the words JESUS MARIA on its side. When she was asked how she had come by the picture on her standard she replied (risking the accusation of blasphemy) that she had done nothing except on God’s instructions (interrogata quis fecit sibi facere illam picturam in vexillo: respondit: ego vobis satis dixi quod nihil feci nisi de pracepto Dei. XVIII. Februarii. quarta sessio). Leelee Sobieski can be seen carrying this standard and the sword into battle in the mini-series Joan of Arc.

The examples above relate to only part of what is required, and are just indicative.

Final grades will be decided using professional judgement based on a holistic examination of the evidence provided against the criteria in the Achievement Standard.
