What is consistency?

Consistency in relation to assessment occurs when teachers are able to make judgements about student learning that are not dependent on the individual teacher, student, location or time and are based on a shared understanding of syllabus standards of learning.

Consistency in making assessment judgements needs to develop:

  • Across assessment tasks
  • Across teachers of different classes
  • Across key learning areas (such as Creative Arts, Mathematics, Science)
  • Across time (within one key learning area over a period of years)
  • Across schools
Establishing procedures and structures to provide sufficient time on a regular basis for teacher discussion about teaching, learning and assessment is the key to enhancing consistency.
