 Assessment & Reporting

Assessment of students’ achievement is an integral part of the planning, teaching and learning cycle. It will involve a variety of styles and approaches. Students are rated on a 5 point scale on their written report card sent each semester.

Assessment is about:

  • Identifying a range of opportunities for students to demonstrate what they know and can do in terms of identified outcomes;
  • Gathering and recording evidence of students’ demonstrations of outcomes;
  • Making judgements about students’ demonstrations of outcomes.

The assessment of student achievement will involve a variety of styles and approaches and will be recorded and stored in a variety of ways.

Guide to recording and storing of information

At St Peter’s School, students’ records and significant demonstrations of learning are stored in the following ways:

  • Student Folio
  • Student Record File

Student Folio

Folios contain samples of evidence of the significant demonstrations of core learning outcomes at a particular level over a selected period of time. Folios will be presented to students at the end of each semester as a record of their progress.  It is important that folios are returned to school at the beginning of the next semester with all contents in place.

Student Record File

These files are located in the filing cabinets in the School Office and remain the property of the school until the child reaches the age of twenty-five. The file contains confidential information about students including Student Enrolment Forms, Medical details and copies of all reports.
