Testing and assessment

We have a Data collection plan that staff follow and use to information to analyse student growth and inform teaching.
Assessment occurs throughout the semester and is gathered via a range of assessment tools such as testing, oral speaking, checklists, anecdotal records and investigations.  Our staff use diagnostic, formative and summative assessment in their programs. 
Diagnostic assessment is used to identify areas for improvement in mathematics and English. The main purpose of formative assessment is to provide feedback (information and guidance) to students, parents and teachers. 
Summative assessment instruments from key learning areas are used to measure student achievement against the Australian Curriculum Standards.  Student work is moderated across schools in our cluster. 
Parents receive written reports about their child/children’s achievement and progress at the end of Semester One and Semester Two. Meet the Teacher and Student led Parent teacher conferences occur during Term Three.  However, parents are encouraged to arrange a time to meet with teachers throughout the year as required to discuss student progress.
NAPLAN is a national test of literacy and numeracy administered in May each year in Years 3 and 5. Individual student results are usually received by parents in Semester Two.
