Listing assessment standards on the Directory of Assessment Standards
Standard-setting bodies (SSBs) are responsible for the quality of assessment standards submitted to Approvals and Accreditation for listing on the Directory of Assessment Standards (DAS). Assessment standards include achievement and unit standards.
Standards are listed on the DAS in accordance with the Directory of Assessment Standards Listing and Operational Rules 2011 using information provided in the Guidelines for listing assessment standards and consent and moderation requirements on the Directory of Assessment Standards (PDF, 445KB).
Applying to list assessment standards
To apply to list standards submit an application online using the “Other” category and write in the type of application (e.g. assessment standard).
The application should contain all the required information specified in the Guidelines for listing assessment standards and consent and moderation requirements on the Directory of Assessment Standards effective from 1 January 2017, and a completed application form (DOCX, 57KB).
An application may be for new or reviewed standards. If the standard has been reviewed a completed assessment standard change report (DOC, 53KB), outlining the changes must be submitted and will be published with the new version of the standard template (DOCX, 23KB).
Any applications for listing standards submitted after 1 January 2017 must use these guidelines on the appropriate templates and correct formatting.
