Student RiskAssess is a version of RiskAssess, optimized for student use, to make science experiments safer. RiskAssess users will find Student RiskAssess very easy to use in the classroom. Student RiskAssess has a different login and password, so that students do not have access to risk assessments created in RiskAssess by teachers and laboratory technicians. More than 300 schools are now using Student RiskAssess.

    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 use

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