Assessment and Reporting
Assessment of students is ongoing and focuses on how students learn. It is central to classroom practice and improved student outcomes. Student assessment includes self assessment and teacher assessment. Teachers will assess students’ prior knowledge, their current understanding of new learning and whether students have achieved their learning goals.
Students will receive Progress Reports mid-way through each Semester. To accompany this report, parents are invited to attend a formal Parent/Teacher interview to discuss student progress. In addition to these two formal opportunities, there are many informal opportunities for parents to discuss their child’s learning with teachers.
A full and comprehensive Semester Report is completed for each student. A detailed report is prepared for each subject. Progress and achievement are recorded in addition to work habits and behaviour.
Years 7 – 10
Curriculum planning, assessment and reporting to parents is guided by the Victorian Curriculum. Teacher assessments are based on the completion of course work and assessment tasks.
Years 11 – 12
The Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority determine the assessment procedures in Years 11-12. Students complete a range of assessment tasks including formal exams. Students must successfully achieve the required outcomes in the studies in which they are enrolled.
