School principals are responsible for managing their school’s overall external assessment responsibilities and the security, storage, and movement of assessment materials within their school.
All external assessments must be administered according to the QCAA’s requirements as outlined in the QCE and QCIA policy and procedures handbook and Directions for administration (DFA): External assessment 2022. The DFA is available for schools to access via the QCAA Portal Noticeboard.
