Assessment and reporting

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.

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.

Assessment is the process by which teachers gather information about student learning.  The types of tasks are outlined on each assessment schedule.  The main purpose of assessment is to provide information about student achievement, level of understanding and progress for reporting to students, parents, employers and the NSW Educational Standards Authority.  A critical component of assessment is the feedback provided by teachers following the completion of a task and/or a section of coursework. Assessment information is also useful for teachers to measure the progress of all students for ongoing teaching and learning.
