TASC uses course score scaling to ensure differences in the degree of difficulty between courses used in the calculation of the tertiary entrance score are evidenced. TASC uses the Rasch Analysis method to analyse the relative difficulties of achieving each award in each course to establish a table of values which give the lower and upper limits of the score range for each award for each course.

The documents below show the scale ranges for each course in a de-identified manner and includes information about the scaling process which is applied to all TASC accredited senior secondary courses at Level 3 and Level 4, as well as approved University of Tasmania units.


Only courses where there were at least 10 results are included.

To protect students’ privacy, we have de-identified the data. As a result, it is not possible to use the data set to identify the results for any student that took a unique combination of TASC courses.
