Assessment guidelines

The document SACE Assessment and Reporting - Guidelines for Teachers (available below) describes the processes for using grades and performance standards to assess and report student achievement in SACE subjects at Stage 1 and Stage 2. They outline:

  • the relationship between grades and performance standards
  • how performance standards are used in the assessment process
  • the role of teachers in assessing and reporting student achievement at Stage 1 and Stage 2
  • the SACE Board's role in confirming standards and reporting results
  • how school assessment and external assessment are combined in Stage 2 subjects
  • what happens when there is missing or insufficient evidence of learning in a Stage 1 or Stage 2 subject.
