Assessment

HomeAssessment

The Assessment section helps you get to know the important highlights of your child’s learning activities from year to year.

Click on each year to find out about the focus of your child’s learning, any upcoming national or state tests or assessments, and how to help them prepare for transitions as they progress through school.

There are links to great tips on how to help your child learn, and how to understand your child’s schoolwork and homework.  Much of the information is also available in multiple community languages.

Our teachers use a variety of strategies to assess student learning.

Teachers observe students’ work in class and look closely at tasks throughout the year. They also formally assess a student’s achievement based on the outcomes described in the syllabus of the subject.

As a parent or carer, you’ll receive a written report twice a year. It gives you a clear picture of your child’s achievements – what they know and can do. You will also receive a WAVE report twice a term.

In Years 7 to 10, we use the common grade scale in reporting. In Year 11, we use the Preliminary grade scale.

Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses are assessed on achievement of competencies.

 

Assessments

We provide detailed information to students about what we expect from them throughout the year and how their work will be assessed. Students have a number of formal assessments throughout their schooling.

Parent – teacher meetings

You will be given a formal opportunity to discuss your child’s progress at a parent-teacher meeting. However, if you have any concerns, don’t wait for a parent-teacher meeting. Please make an appointment to discuss these concerns as they arise with the relevant teacher.

If you need an interpreter, ask us to call the interpreter service on 13 14 50. This service is free.
