Quality assurance in the SACE

The quality assurance cycle assures the integrity of the assessment and reporting of student achievement against the performance standards for a subject. The interpretation and application of the performance standards is confirmed by a moderation process as part of the quality assurance cycle, ensuring students have fair, valid, and reliable results.

There are four stages in the quality assurance cycle: planning, clarifying, confirming, and improving.

Teachers can access professional learning to support the development of these stages, including clarifying courses in PLATO, working as a member of a Stage 2 assessment panel, and attending other workshops and meetings.
