  Verification is the process by
  which review panels advise
  schools about Year 12 student
  achievement relative to
  syllabus standards descriptors
What is in a verification submission?
• Form R6
• Copy of the approved work program
• Clean copies of assessment tasks
• Minimum of nine sample student folios (or the whole
  cohort, if less than nine) with completed profiles
• Documentation of student performances and other
  evidence as specified by the syllabus
Role of panellists at verification
• Look for evidence in sample folios to support school
  judgments about student responses
• Pre-review submissions prior to the verification
  meeting
• Complete detailed pre-review notes to record
  findings
• Conduct further reviews at the verification meeting
  and complete detailed review notes
• Conference with other panellists to construct a
  consensus report for each school submission
Role of review panel
At verification, review panels consider:
• interim level of achievement decisions
• the appropriateness of schools’ judgments about
  student responses to assessment instruments
  relative to the syllabus standards descriptors
• the effectiveness of assessment in providing
  opportunities for students to demonstrate the
  syllabus general objectives across the range of
  standards
• coverage of the course as demonstrated by
  evidence in the verification submission
