Assessment and Reporting

Assessment

Teachers conduct a range of assessments with students throughout the year.  Teachers use the Student Performance Analyser (SPA) to track student progress.

In May each year, all students in Years 3 and 5 sit the NAPLAN (National Assessment Program Literacy and Numeracy). These results are externally assessed and parents will recieve a report on their child’s results by the end of Term 3.

Reporting to Parents

Student semester reports are sent home to parents at the end of Term 2 and the end of Term 4. Student reports provide you with a clear picture of your child’s progress. They are used for every student in all Victorian government schools to report student achievement against the Victorian Curriculum achievement standards in Prep to Year 10. The Victorian Curriculum provides curriculum for all learners including those with disabilities.  Our report also includes a report on your child’s progress in the Units of Inquiry.

All students receive a progress report via Compass at the end of Term 1 and Term 3.  This report shows achievement in the areas of Behaviour, Organisation, Cooperation, Persistence and Quality of Output for all subject areas.

Teacher/Parent/Student interviews are available at the end of each term.

All students have an Individual Learning Improvement Plan.  Teachers meet with parents once a term to discuss their child’s individual plan.
