Assessment and reporting

Our teachers use a variety of strategies to assess student learning.

Teachers observe students' work in class and look closely at tasks throughout the year. They also formally assess a student's achievement based on the outcomes described in the syllabus of the subject.

As a parent or carer, you’ll receive a written report twice a year. It gives you a clear picture of your child’s achievements – what they know and can do.

In Years 7 to 10, we use the common grade scale in reporting. In Year 11, we use the Preliminary grade scale.

Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses are assessed on achievement of competencies.


We provide detailed information to students about what we expect from them throughout the year and how their work will be assessed. Students have a number of formal assessments throughout their schooling.

Assessment Years 7-10 

Students are provided a number of formal assessments in each course (no more than typically one per course, per term).  For term 3, 2021 the assessment schedule is as below:

Assessment Years 11-12

Students in Years 11 and 12 are issued with an assessment schedule at the beginning of the Year 11 and 12 courses.  Additional schedules are available upon request.

Students receive formal notification of senior assessments no later than 10 school days before the task is due.
