You may notice your child coming home and saying “I did another assessment today”. It is this time of year that teachers start preparing for their Semester Two reports and they are assessing whether their students have achieved the Stage outcomes they have been learning about.
Assessment can take all different forms. They may be completed online (PAT-R or PAT-M), as a stand-alone assessment completed on a separate piece of paper or they may have multiple pieces of day - to - day work assessed. You will know how grades for Key Learning Areas have been achieved based on the rubric or marking criteria attached to that task. You would have seen many examples of these in the Semester One Work Sample folder that came home with your child’s report.
If you have a question or concern about the grade your child has achieved, you should approach the classroom teacher who can explain how a grade was awarded. If you are still unsure or have further questions, you can email the office and request a meeting with Lisa or myself.
I want to take this opportunity to thank all our teaching staff for the hard work they have put into developing quality teaching and learning activities for the students and assessing them according to their abilities.
Have a wonderful week,
