The learning outcomes describe what learners should know and be able to do. Assessment standards describe the minimum level, depth and breadth of what is to be learnt. In practical terms this means that learning outcomes can and will, in most cases, remain the same from grade to grade while assessment standards change from grade to grade.

The assessment standards also contribute towards the qualification. In the case of the General Education and Training band, this means the General Education and Training Certificate.

Learning support materials and teacher development programmes will play an important role in interpreting and giving expression to the learning outcomes and assessment standards.
