ATAR Results Process Internal Audit Report
20 May 2019
On 18 December 2018, a correction and re-issuing of the Australian Tertiary Admission Ranking (ATAR) was required for all ATAR eligible Tasmanian students.
This was as a result of a procedural error which had occurred in the derivation of tertiary entrance scores for some students who had undertaken the University of Tasmania High Achiever Program (HAP) and University Connections Program (UCP) units in 2018.
The Department of Education contracted KPMG to undertake an internal audit of processes used to handle and release the Tasmanian Certificate of Education (TCE) and ATAR scores for students with a particular focus on those studying HAP and UCP units in 2018.
Seven recommendations were made in the report. The Department and TASC have accepted all the recommendation and are working to implement them.
