Assessment and reporting Year 11

Our teachers use a variety of strategies to assess each student's work. This includes observing their work in class and looking closely at the work they produce throughout the year.

 

Teachers also assess each student's achievements based on the outcomes of the syllabuses of each course.

 

There are two reports on student progress during the Year 11 course.

1.         a Mid Course report; and

2.         an End of Course report.

We provide detailed information to students about what is expected from them throughout the year and how their work will be assessed. The Common Grade Scale is used to report student achievement in Year 11 in all NSW schools. You can read more about the Common Grade Scale and how it describes performance at each of the five grade levels by clicking here (pdf 6 KB)

 

Year 11 students receive their assessment and reporting information at the beginning of term 1. This consists of detailed information which includes the school's Preliminary Assessment and Reporting Policy and procedures, the schedule of assessment tasks for their courses, extracts from the relevant syllabus, as well as extracts from the ACE Manual. You can download a copy of our updated 2018 Preliminary Course Assessment and Reporting Policy here (pdf 55 KB).

Our Frequently Asked Questions also help to explain our procedures and they can be downloaded here (pdf 25 KB).

 

 

Request for consideration

Please refer to the specific assessment and reporting policies for more information about requests for consideration in the event that students do not complete an assessment task on the scheduled date. Our updated Misadventure Form can be downloaded here (pdf 123 KB).

You can download our proforma for Independent evidence of illness or misadventure here (pdf 186 KB). This form needs to be completed so more information explaining the absence can be provided. 

 

 

Parent/carer - teacher meetings

Parents/carers will have the opportunity to discuss their child's progress at a parent-teacher meeting during the year. However, if there are any issues you wish to discuss with your child's teacher, please contact the front office to arrange an appointment.
