Robertson State School’s assessment of student abilities and achievement includes the implementation of formative, summative and diagnostic assessments undertaken progressively throughout the year to provide an informed picture of a student’s abilities and achievements. All assessment undertaken by students is used to provide information regarding future direction of teaching and learning. All summative assessment tasks are moderated amongst year level teams to ensure a consistent approach to allocating student achievement levels aligned with the achievement standard for each subject area.
Through academic reporting and parent teacher interviews, Robertson State School allows the opportunity for parents and families to gain an understanding regarding their student’s ongoing achievements. Where appropriate, specifically if there is concern around student achievement, assessment results are shared with parents immediately.
Academic reporting uses the professional judgement of a teacher regarding each student’s demonstration of the achievement standard based upon the associated assessment pieces collected from students throughout the semester. This is communicated through the issuing of a formal report card at the end of each semester.
Parent teacher interviews are conducted twice a year and allow for the opportunity to meet with your child’s teacher to discuss their progress. Parents are always welcome throughout the year to contact their child’s teacher to make an appointment should they wish to further discuss their child’s academic achievement or wellbeing.
