The Qualification | Quality Assurance | Intro
The SACE is supported by a comprehensive quality assurance process called the quality assurance cycle.
This ensures that the standard of student work is the same wherever a student is studying.
The SACE Board, in partnership with schools, uses a range of quality assurance processes to ensure that students' results are fair, valid, and reliable.

SACE quality assurance cycle stages
There are four phases within the SACE Board's quality assurance cycle—planning, clarifying, confirming and improving.
Teachers develop teaching, learning, and assessment opportunities that will help students to show their learning against all levels of the performance standards.
Teachers develop and maintain an understanding of performance standards and how to apply them consistently to student work. The SACE Board provides samples of student work to support this phase.
Teachers assess student work. They apply and provide results consistently, ensure that supervision and verification procedures are applied, and use Schools Online to complete and submit results.
Schools and teachers receive feedback from the SACE Board. They use this feedback to learn from the assessment process, strengthen their understanding and use of the performance standards, and improve assessment design and teaching.
