Assessment of student work in the SACE is underpinned by the use of performance standards. These standards – provided in each subject outline – describe in detail the level of achievement required to achieve each grade:
- from A to E for Stage 1
- from A+ to E- for Stage 2.
Subject outlines are available under Planning to Teach on each minisite.
Teachers and assessors use these standards to decide how well a student has demonstrated his or her learning.
Detailed information for SACE Coordinators, including important dates, forms and more, is provided on the SACE Operations page.
