Clear View Tutoring are specialists in their academic field with explicit knowledge of the new Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) system that supersedes the old OP system.
This is in stark contrast to many tutoring companies, with staff who are not degree qualified or have teaching degrees based upon year 11/12 of the outdated system. Unfortunately, such tutors often lack the ability to comprehensively guide and instruct their students.
In addition, not all senior teachers have completed the six Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) training modules that explain the current Instrument-specific marking guides (ISMGs) resulting in students lacking adequate instruction on how to navigate the new system and subsequently achieve their desired grades.
What has changed? For example, the standard that used to be Maths B has actually changed and increased to become harder. The content has become more specific and more rigorous. In addition to that, the way that the content is assessed and marked has changed and become more in depth and far more procedural.
Learning to effectively navigate and excel in the new system begins in primary years and carries right through their education, ultimately setting students up to do better long term, because it has become more aligned with what happens at university.
In essence, by understanding how assessments are built, we have a deeper understanding as to how they are marked, and we are better positioned to guide each student on their path to greater confidence and success.
