Teachers use a number of assessment and evaluation techniques to determine the progress of each child. Each child's progress is measured against the expected levels of achievement as outlined in the Victorian Curriculum. Typical assessment techniques include:- observation, anecdotal records, checklists, tests, reports, written work, group and individual tasks.
Students in Grade 3 and 5 participate annually in the state wide assessments of Mathematics and English. The Naplan tests (National Assessment Program Literacy and Numeracy) are conducted during Term 2.
The Assessment and Reporting Achievements are communicated to parents through:
¨ Learning Conversations (interviews ) Term One and Three
¨ Formal Reports to the Victorian Curriculum and Religious Education. Term Two and Four
However the most important avenue for the communication of academic achievement and progress is through the PAM portal where student learning goals, teacher feedback and evidence of learning is continually upload to allow parents/guardians to be fully engaged in their chidl's learning.
