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’s achievement based on the outcomes described in the syllabus of each subject. A written report using the common grade scale 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’s learning.


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.

Throughout the year regular formative and summative assessments are used to guide teaching and learning programs, and monitor and assess student progress.  They also form the basis for compiling a twice-yearly student progress report to parents. In this way, assessment is continuous and ongoing based on the teacher’s observations of the student’s daily work, as well as more formal assessment strategies.
