Testing and assessment

The data collected from testing and assessment helps to inform future whole school initiatives as well as unit plans for teaching and learning.

Students will be assessed on the tasks set out in C2C units for English, mathematics, science and history. This consistency ensures that all assessment is aligned with the targeted content descriptions and achievement standards for that year level and allows for teachers to moderate across classes and district schools. These are the assessment tasks that parents will read about in report cards.

Technology, Health and physical education (HPE), Language other than English (LOTE), The arts and Studies of society and the environment (SOSE) will also be reported on each semester under the assessable elements of the Essential Learnings curriculum until they are taken up by Australian curriculum assessment and reporting authority (ACARA). Monitoring tasks are also used by teachers to help check student progress and inform future teaching decisions.

A focus on reading

To enable the design of tailored reading programs, our students' reading levels/ages are individually tested at the commencement of the school year and again at the end of the year to monitor student growth as well as inform future developments in reading programs.

Reporting to parents

Parents are warmly invited to discuss a student's progress at any time with their child's teacher, however, formal report cards will be sent home to parents once at the end of each semester. Parents are also invited to take up the invitation for a face-to-face interview with teachers during semester 1 and again in semester 2.  These will be advertised in the newsletters and accessible from the PTO icon on the home page.

How can I find out more?

Year level teams conduct a parent information session at the beginning of each school year where they share details about testing, assessment and reporting. 

At the commencement of each term, year level teaching teams send out a parent information letter describing 'what's happening' for their year level for that term with important details about assessment topics and dates.
