Understanding assessment

In a Stage 1 subject, all student work is assessed by the school. In a Stage 2 subject, 70% of student work is assessed by the school, with 30% assessed externally.

Student work is assessed using the performance standards provided in each subject outline. Teachers develop a learning and assessment plan (LAP) to ensure that school assessment tasks allow students to achieve at the highest level of the performance standards.

As part of the SACE Board’s quality assurance cycle, school assessments undergo moderation to confirm the application of the performance standards before students receive their final subject grades.

All student work should be their own. As a teacher, you'll need to supervise and verify their work.

Do you have a student with a disability, or been affected by misadventure or personal circumstances beyond their control? See special provisions.
