Information sheet 02

Advice for new applicants about expressing interest in membership of assessment panels.

The SACE Board invites teachers to express interest in membership of the following assessment panels:

School assessment

  • Moderation (final)

External assessment

  • Examination setting
  • Examination vetting
  • Marking — investigations, oral examinations, performances, and written examinations.

Members of these assessment panels work collaboratively with the relevant SACE officer, the Chief Supervisor — Schools Assessment, and/or the Chief Supervisor — External Assessment for the subject, to ensure that the assessment and moderation processes for Stage 2 subjects lead to fair, valid, and reliable results for students.

Refer to Stage 2 Quality assurance and assessment panels [PDF 146KB] for an outline of each panel’s purpose and the roles of panel members.

Expressions of interest

Expressions of interest are submitted using the application form.

Applicants should complete the form and provide supporting information, which will be used during the selection process.

Applicants must read the information about the requirement to sign a declaration upon appointment.

Panel members are drawn from a register of applicants whose expressions of interest have been accepted by the SACE Board.

Each year the SACE Board invites people who are on the register to update their personal information and availability for panels.
