TELAS is underpinned by the TELAS Framework developed by ASCILITE. The framework comprises four domains. A brief description of these domains is provided below.
Each domain has two standards with each standard having a set of performance criteria. The assessment of a learning package is measured against the performance criteria and the assessment of these performance criteria is guided by a corresponding set of success indicators.
The assessment form used in the TELAS app is identical to the TELAS Framework but includes an underlying scoring system that determines the accreditation level of the reviewed learning package.
