ASSESSMENT and REPORTING

pda-StRobertsPS-040822-3.jpg

Assessment and Reporting are both crucial elements of the Learning and Teaching Cycle at St Robert’s. We are always seeking ways to further enhance these practices.

A cycle of pre- and post-testing allows planning for instruction to be explicit, systematic and responsive. Timely assessments throughout the year assist teachers to make informed and accurate judgments about student learning - their progress and future learning needs.

 

 

 

Timely information about learning and student progress occurs regularly throughout each term via Seesaw. Parents are also encouraged to provide comments and feedback about their child’s progress through the commenting platform.

 

At the end of Semester One  and Semester Two, a written report for each student is prepared by class teachers and distributed to families. 

 

In accordance  with  the CECV Reporting Student Progress and Achievement: 2022 Revised Guidelines for Victorian Catholic Schools, St Roberts has two formal opportunities provided for face to face interviews every year: 

 

  • Early Term One - Meet and Greet  conversations provide a valuable opportunity for parents to share important information about their child with the new classroom teacher, as well as, hear how the child has transitioned into the new learning space.

 

  • End of Term Two - Parent/Teacher conversations are complemented by the Semester One Report and are guided by student work samples. They are designed to provide families with personalised feedback about how their child(ren) has progressed academically, socially and behaviorally throughout Semester One and to be better made aware of future learning goals. 

 

At St Robert’s we embrace an open door philosophy that promotes regular communication between the class teacher and families. Thus parents and teachers are encouraged to discuss student learning needs beyond these formal times when required.
