Throughout each year, comprehensive assessment strategies are adopted so that teachers can inform their teaching and identify student needs and progress.
In Year 3 and Year 5 all students complete the NAPLAN, an annual assessment for all students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9. This assessment provides parents and our teachers with an understanding of how individual students are performing at the time of the tests. NAPLAN is just one aspect of a school’s assessment and reporting process – it does not replace ongoing assessments made by teachers about student performance.
NAPLAN also provides schools, education authorities and governments with information about how education programs are working and whether young Australians are achieving important educational outcomes in literacy and numeracy.
Students receive two written reports each year – one at the end of Term 2 and one at the end of Term 4.
