Reasonable Adjustments for TASC external assessments

Application forms for 2024 Reasonable Adjustments are now available.

School TASC Liaison Officers (TLOs) can commence submissions via TRACS from Wednesday, 3 April 2024.

TASC recognises that some Tasmanian senior secondary students may not be able to access or participate in Level 3 and 4 TASC accredited courses on the same basis as other students without access to reasonable adjustments for their end-of-year external assessments.

All Australian states, through their senior secondary authorities, including TASC in Tasmania, provide students with reasonable adjustments to support equitable access and opportunities for success in completing their senior secondary studies and assessment.

It is expected that students are able to demonstrate, with the support of their reasonable adjustment/s, the required knowledge, skills and standards of the course during the external assessment.

Information about reasonable adjustment policy decisions and processes can be found in the TASC Reasonable Adjustments Policy.

Background: Special Provisions Project (2019)

TASC and schools share responsibilities and obligations under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 and Disability Standards for Education 2005 to make reasonable adjustments to enable students eligible on the grounds of disability, to participate in programs, and associated assessments, on the same basis as other students.
Following a Request for Quotation process, TASC appointed consultant John Firth to undertake a Special Provisions Project throughout June 2019. In October 2019, Mr Firth provided TASC with the Project Report, Special Provisions in the Tasmanian Certificate of Education outlining 17 recommendations.
