Reporting on students’ progress will occur in a variety of ways:
- Formal written reports indicating levels of performance, the nature of the tasks undertaken, satisfactory completion of learning outcomes, strengths, weaknesses and other appropriate comments, will be issued at the end of each semester. (This will include an ‘S’ for satisfactory completion or an ‘N’ if the work has not been satisfactorily completed.) In the reports, grades are awarded to indicate the level of performance on a range of assessment tasks. The letter grades used are A+ to E, UG (Ungraded, for work which is poor) and NA (Not Assessed, for work which has not been submitted).
- Brief Interim Reports indicating general progress, alerting students and parents to areas of concern and requesting parent – teacher interviews if appropriate, will be issued in the middle of Semester 1 and Semester 2.
- Parent – teacher (and student where desired) interviews are held shortly after the distribution of the Interim Reports in each semester.
- Year 12 students receive a formal reference from the College at the end of their final year.
- For students experiencing particular difficulties, there is a daily reporting procedure.
Parents with concerns about student progress are encouraged to contact the student’s Year Level Coordinator at any time.
For VCE subjects, there are two components to assessment :
- Each outcome (as defined by VCAA) will be awarded an ‘S’ for satisfactory completion, or an ‘N’ if the work has not been satisfactorily completed. If all outcomes receive an ‘S’ then the Unit as a whole is satisfactorily completed.
- In addition to the ‘S’ and ‘N’ indicators, the School will also provide information to students and parents through grades on the semester reports. [Only the ‘S’ and ‘N’ results for Year 11/Unit 1&2 studies are reported to the VCAA, and these are included in the official statement of results. For Year 12/Unit 3&4 studies, school assessed coursework (SAC) grades and ‘S’ and ‘N’ are reported to the VCAA.]
