Curriculum and assessment

Assessment and reporting

The purpose of school assessment is to measure performance and progress in relation to the course outcomes. Students will be assessed in the four skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing.

Our teachers use a variety of strategies to assess each student's work. This includes observing their work in class and looking closely at the work they produce throughout the year. Teachers also assess each student's achievements based on the outcomes of the syllabuses of each course.

All students will receive an Assessment Information Booklet at the beginning of the school year which will detail the dates, weightings, objectives, outcomes, and types of assessment tasks to be completed. 

You will receive a half-yearly written report at the end of Term 2, and a yearly  report at the end of Term 4 (students in Years 11 and 12 will receive theirs in Term 3). These reports can also be accessed by the weekday school.

Homework

Homework is a valuable part of teaching and learning at the SSCL. It allows students to practice, consolidate and extend upon work completed in the classroom. The nature, frequency, and volume of homework set will be determined by the classroom teacher.

Students and parents/caregivers will be advised of homework expectations at the beginning of the year. Failure by students to complete homework on a regular basis will be followed up with parents/caregivers.

Request for consideration

Please refer to the specific assessment and reporting policies for more information about requests for consideration in the event that students do not complete an assessment task on the scheduled date. Download the request for consideration form (PDF 168KB).

Parent and caregiver - teacher meetings

Parents and caregivers will have the opportunity to discuss their child's progress at a parent-teacher meeting during the year. However, if there are any issues you wish to discuss with your child's teacher, please contact the Centre Supervisor to arrange an appointment.
