Impacts to student learning and academic reporting

For academic reporting, schools will make reporting decisions based on what has been taught and assessed. The requirements for academic reporting are set out in the reporting to parents section of the P–12 curriculum assessment and reporting framework.

The Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) will continue to monitor the impact of COVID-19 on senior secondary schooling and share relevant information, as required.
