Our teachers have begun preparing Student Learning reports for Semester 2. This Semester, you will find that our Reports have a slightly different format and this is due to our Reports now being aligned to our Student Information System, Compass, and being consistent with other schools in CEDP.
Your child’s report will now show individual grades for strands in Mathematics and English. It is important to note that although teachers assign a grade to different strands, not all strands carry the same weighting. Some strands may be much larger than others, for example, in Mathematics, Statistics and Probably only has two outcomes whereas Number has eleven.
It is also important to understand A - E gradings on our reports. A ‘C’ grade means that your child is achieving at their grade average and has a sound understanding of the work that has been completed. An ‘A’ grade means that your child is working well above the average in that grade and an ‘E’ grade means that your child requires assistance in that area. The grade your child receives will change as they progress from Kindergarten to Year 6 and even each Semester, depending on the outcomes that have been assessed.
This Semester you may notice that Science or HSIE has not been assessed for your child. This is due to earlier in the year, when we were not at school full time due to COVID-19, some teachers made the decision to move their Science / HSIE units to later in the year to accommodate more ‘hands on’ activities. This decision was made to maximise learning experiences for our students and is in line with NESA allowances for the disruption to schooling.
Our teachers work very hard preparing an accurate picture of your child’s learning. If you have any questions regarding your child’s report or their learning in general, please don’t hesitate to contact their classroom teacher.
