The QCAA recognises that artificial intelligence (AI) is rapidly changing the way schools engage in teaching, learning and assessment. To provide high-quality curriculum, assessment and reporting services, the QCAA is committed to using evidence-led and research-based decision-making practices to respond to the opportunities and implications of AI and generative AI.
The following guidance documents have been developed for schools, students and parents/carers, to support and guide the development of policies, resources and general advice about the responsible use of AI particularly, generative AI. As AI continues to evolve, the QCAA will continue to lead in a principled and evidence-informed way to support the development of digital literacy, promote academic integrity and examine the implications for assessment.
The guidance documents provide information about:
- useful AI and generative AI terms
- ethical scholarship strategies to inform school assessment policies
- privacy and accuracy considerations to inform teaching and learning.

School Assessment policies
The QCE and QCIA policies and procedures handbook is available to assist schools to develop policies to outline the requirements and expectations to manage the teaching, learning and assessment for all subjects or courses of study.
These policies support schools in promoting equitable and credible outcomes and include:
- academic integrity
- integrating learning and assessment
- developing a school assessment policy.
Queensland schools plan, teach, assess and report using the Australian Curriculum in Prep–Year 10. The QCAA provides advice and resources to support teachers to implement the Australian Curriculum and these resources can be adapted to suit a specific school context.
