Assessors trained by the QCAA will have a consistent understanding of quality assessment and high-level skills in judging the qualities of student work.

These assessors will lead the quality assurance of school-based assessment through the processes of endorsement and confirmation, and will contribute to the reliability and validity of external assessment through instrument development and marking.

Training program

Teachers wishing to become assessors in Queensland’s new system of senior assessment will complete a two-part training program.

Part one

The first part of the program will examine:

  • the language of senior assessment
  • item construction
  • judgments about the quality of student work.

Part two

The second part of the program will prepare assessors for quality assurance processes. Its four modules will cover:

  • endorsement
  • confirmation
  • external assessment development
  • external assessment marking.

Each module will be subject-specific, ensuring teachers have the comprehensive knowledge and understanding required to undertake quality assurance of senior assessment. These modules will be offered in 2017 and 2018.

More than 1000 Queensland teachers have trialled elements of the training program.
