Schools are required to retain folios of student work used in determining exit levels of achievement.
Reasons for retaining student work
Evidence contained in student exit folios is used:
- to support school exit level of achievement decisions
- for quality assurance purposes.
Folios of evidence may be required for:
- the November confirmation period to substantiate school exit level of achievement decisions
- applications for verification or review of results requested by students in Authority and Authority-registered subjects
- internal and external reviews of QCAA short courses (for external reviews, schools will present a sample folio for each short course offered).
What you need to do
Put procedures in place to:
- retain all student work used in determining exit levels of achievement in Authority subjects, Authority-registered subjects and QCAA short courses until the end of Term 1 of the year following student completion
- retain one sample student folio for each QCAA short course offered until the next external review.
