Changes to Senior Assessment and Tertiary Entrance

Monday, 27/03/2017 Posted by: Maree Taylor

The Queensland Government is introducing new senior curriculum and assessment for the Queensland Certificate of Education. Work is underway to ensure teachers, students and parents have time to understand the new arrangements.

A new tertiary entrance system will move from the current Overall Position (OP) and tertiary rank – based on results in five senior Authority subjects – to a more inclusive rank which may also include a Vocational Education and Training (VET) qualification or Subject Area Syllabus (SAS) subject. The new rank will take the form of an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR), as used in other Australian states and territories.

Stuartholme is committed to keeping families informed with the latest information we receive from the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA).

The QCAA recently released a number of documents which you may be interested in reading.

Should you have any further questions, please email Ken Turnbull, Deputy Principal Learning.
