External Assessment Processes Review 2018
The Office of Tasmanian Assessment, Standards and Certification (TASC) has undertaken an independent review of 2017 external assessment processes.
Request for quote
Following a Request for Quote process, independent consultant, John Firth from Victoria was appointed to conduct the Review. John Firth undertook a holistic review incorporating all Terms of Reference (ToR) with particular focus on recruitment processes for sessional staff, operational logistics and timely communications. WLF Advisory & Consultancy were engaged to specifically work on the ToR in relation to determination of what constitutes a marking load and payment rates for sessional staff.
Review findings and recommendations
Both independent consultants provided reports for my consideration which included 20 recommendations from John Firth’s and four recommendations from WLF against the ToR. The reports from both consultants are found below.
I accept in full, all 24 recommendations from both independent consultants. TASC has prepared a response to the review findings.
I thank both independent consultants and TASC stakeholders for their time and expertise in assisting with the conduct of this Review.
Katrina Beams, Executive Officer, TASC
