Assessment and reporting

Our teachers use a variety of strategies to assess student learning.

Teachers observe students' work in class and look closely at tasks throughout the year. They also formally assess a student's achievement based on the outcomes described in the syllabus of the subject.

As a parent or carer, you’ll receive a written report twice a year. It gives you a clear picture of your child’s achievements – what they know and can do.

In Years 7 to 10, we use the common grade scale in reporting. In Year 11, we use the Preliminary grade scale.

Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses are assessed on achievement of competencies.


We provide detailed information to students about what we expect from them throughout the year and how their work will be assessed. Students have a number of formal assessments throughout their schooling.

Minimum standards testing

Minimum standards is a new online literacy and numeracy test.  Students from Year 10 and Year 11 will be required to pass the minimum standards test in order to qualify for the High School Certificate. There are three tests – reading, writing and numeracy. You must pass all three to qualify. Each student will be allowed to do the test a maximum of two times per year until they achieve the standard.
