The Queensland Government will introduce new senior assessment and tertiary entrance systems, starting with students entering Year 11 in 2019.
The new systems will include:
- a model that uses school-based assessment and common external assessment
- processes that strengthen the quality and comparability of school-based assessment
- a move away from the Overall Position (OP) rank to an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR).
Students and their families should be reassured that existing processes remain fair and reliable.
