The awards you could receive for a TASC accredited course are: 

  • Preliminary Achievement 
  • Satisfactory Achievement 
  • Commendable Achievement
  • High Achievement 
  • Exceptional Achievement. 

For Vocational Education and Training: 

  • courses – Competent or Not Competent 
  • qualifications – Achieved. 

Your final award for a TASC accredited course is determined by TASC from the internal assessment ratings and external assessment ratings (where applicable) that you achieve. How many ratings there are for each course, and how many are from internal assessment and external assessment is detailed on the Course page for each course under “Award Requirements”. 

A course will contribute to your Tasmanian Certificate of Education (TCE) if you achieve an award of Preliminary Achievement (PA) or higher. The number of TCE credit points for each course is listed on the Course page for each course. 

Internal assessment 

Your teacher for each course assesses your achievement during the year. The number and type of internal assessments depend on the course you are studying, and are outlined on the Course page for the course under “Work Requirements”. 

External assessment 

Only Level 3 and 4 courses have external assessment requirements. These may be a written or oral exam, folio, project work, practical or display assessment. These courses are externally assessed by TASC markers. External assessment details are outlined on the Course page for each course under “External Assessment Requirements”. 

Derived exam ratings 

Derived exam ratings are used to determine your external assessment results, if it is accepted that you are sick or experience an emergency and can’t attend your exam (in whole or in part). You need to apply to receive derived exam ratings. See the information sheet about Student Results using Derived Exam Ratings.
