Assessment and Reporting

Assessment and reporting are an essential part of our planning and implementation process where we strive to use valid, relevant and reliable processes to achieve accurate results. A regular cycle of pre- and post-testing allows teachers to differentiate the curriculum and tailor content to the student’s point of need. Timely reporting of student progress occurs regularly throughout each term via Student Assessment Portfolios.

Student Assessment Portfolios include:

  • an outline of the assessment task
  • curriculum expectation over a learning continuum
  • personalised teacher comments
  • insightful student reflections about their learning
  • work samples related to the task
  • parent feedback

Student Assessment Portfolios are sent home to parents each term, allowing for regular communication between home and school. Parents are also encouraged to provide valuable feedback about their child’s progress through this forum.

In addition to the Student Assessment Portfolios, parents receive a formal written report at the end of each semester.

Christ the King firmly believe that this approach to assessment and reporting allows for teacher, student and parent engagement throughout the Learning and Teaching cycle.
