In 2012 Deakin conducted a desk review of compliance with each of the Threshold Standards. The outcomes of the evaluation were used to develop an action plan to improve practices and documentation.
In 2012 the faculties conducted a comprehensive review of all courses to ensure that they comply with the AQF. Action Plans were developed and are being implemented to ensure that all students enrol in AQF compliant courses in 2015.
Guidelines (332 KB) have been developed to assist Faculties to implement their Action Plans.
The threshold stardards include important requirements relating to the quality and integrity of assessment. A new framework (165 KB) is now in place to strengthen Deakin's quality assurance processes in this important area.
