Examination marking security

SACE Board appointed Markers and Supervisors for Stage 2 subjects with a paper examination will have their marking and supervision batches delivered to their schools. Marking will only be delivered directly to a private address where markers/supervisors are not currently working at a school.

The security requirements for handling the examination marking packages is different to the strict requirements for written examination questions booklets. The need to store examinations in a fixed safe is only required prior to examination day, to ensure the integrity of the exam is maintained.

School staff must follow the procedures outlined below when receiving marking package deliveries from the SACE Board.

  • Storage of marking packages must be in a location that can only be accessed by school staff (not students)
  • Marking packages must only be opened by the marker/supervisor identified on the package
  • Couriers will return the marking packages to the SACE Board if they are unable to complete a signed delivery.
