Standardisation is available for teachers each academic year, with advice and guidance on the best way to accurately mark your student's work. This training is also available online, maximising flexibility for teachers. Learn more about Teacher online standardisation (T-OLS).

Online standardisation is accessed via e-AQA.

Exemplar materials and other resources to help you prepare your students for controlled assessment are available on T-OLS. Mark pieces of exemplar work, compare your mark to that of the Principal moderator, and read the rationale behind their mark.
