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.

Assessment Booklets and Schedules

Each year an assessment schedule is developed that tells students what formal assessments will be condcvted throughout the year. These schedules are published in Assessment booklets that are issued to the girls at the beginning of each year. The booklets also contain the assessment rules and requirements. It is important for students to be familiar with these to ensure they comply with established procedures.

You can download the booklets from the links below.

If you have any questions about assessment in each year please call the school and request to talk to the Deputy Principal for your daughters year.

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.
