Student taking test

Teachers regularly monitor and assess students’ knowledge, understanding and application of learning throughout all units of work. Teachers use a range of diagnostic assessment tools to track individual progress in literacy and numeracy so that they can best support each student with their learning needs.


Reporting

Formal assessment of units of work is conducted regularly and parents receive 2 x written reports each year in addition to parent/teacher interviews at least twice per year (usually Term 1 and Term 3). Parents are always welcome to approach teachers for more regular progress updates. Making an appointment via email, telephone or in person will ensure that a suitable time for both parents and teachers is established.


NAPLAN

The National Assessment Program-Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) is an annual assessment for all students across the nation in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9.

Naplan is made up of 4 tests in the areas of:

  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Language conventions (Spelling, grammar and punctuation)
  • Numeracy

NAPLAN tests skills in literacy and numeracy that are developed through all subject areas in the curriculum across time. These tests occur mid Term 2 of each year (3, 5).


ICAS

ICAS tests are offered and run during school time throughout the year at dates designated by the University of New South Wales (UNSW).

ICAS Tests offered are:

  • Science
  • English
  • Mathematics

Written reports and certificates are sent by UNSW once marking is complete.
