Assessment and reporting

Our teachers use a variety of strategies to assess student learning. These include observing work in class and looking closely at tasks throughout the year.

Twice a year, teachers formally assess a student鈥檚 achievement based on the outcomes described in the syllabus of each subject. A written report using the is sent home in the first half of the year, usually near the end of Term 2, and again in Term 4. This gives a clear picture of your child鈥檚 learning.

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.

  • 鈥 a mandatory, one-to-one assessment that identifies a student鈥檚 literacy and numeracy skills at the beginning of Kindergarten.
  • 鈥 reading, writing, language conventions (spelling, punctuation and grammar) and numeracy tests for students in Years 3 and 5. The Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) holds the tests in May each year. Results and student reports are released in August.
  • 鈥 online diagnostic science assessment for students in Year 6.
  • Some students may elect to sit the opportunity class or selective high school placement tests. For more information, visit .
