Standards elaborations

The QCAA has developed standards elaborations from the Australian Curriculum achievement standards. The standards elaborations provide teachers with a tool for making consistent, comparable and defensible judgments about how well, on a five-point scale, students have demonstrated what they know, understand and can do.

The standards elaborations can be used to:

  • align curriculum, assessment and reporting
  • develop task-specific standards (marking guides)
  • make consistent, comparable and defensible judgments on a five-point scale, based on evidence of learning in an individual assessment or a folio of student work.
