Within the Australian Curriculum, assessment focuses on students' achievement standards. With this approach students are aware of what is being assessed, the assessment techniques being used and the criteria by which their standard of work produced will be judged. During the year, children will receive 'Criteria Sheets' which enable students and parents to understand what is being assessed and the level of that achievement. Besides the ongoing assessment in the classroom, children in Year 3 and Year 5 are involved in the National Literacy and Numeracy Tests. These tests aim to provide information on student achievements in some aspects of literacy and numeracy.
Formal written reports are provided at the end of Semester 1 and Semester 2 on the Parent Portal. Formal Parent/Teacher interviews are offered at the end of Semester 1 with informal opportunities provided throughout the year.
It is our policy that homework is set. It is the parents responsibility to ensure that homework is undertaken. This policy is explained to parents through the classroom introduction and overview letter that is sent home in the first 2 weeks by the Classroom Teacher. Parents are expected to consult with their child's teacher so that they are familiar with the homework policy of the class.
