Statement of Equity Principles

This Statement of Equity Principles provides a guide to writers of syllabuses, support materials and assessment guidelines in developing materials which relate to two of the Board's corporate objectives:

  • to develop high quality courses and support materials for primary and secondary education suited to the needs of the full range of students;
  • to assess student achievement and award credentials of international standards to meet the needs of the full range of students.

The Statement of Equity Principles is derived from the Board's Statement of Values (pp 2-3) which was endorsed by the Board in 1994. The Statement of Equity Principles serves to elucidate the Statement of Values from an equity perspective.
