At Mount Rogers Primary School we utilise a number of approaches both formal and informal for assessing and reporting student progress.
The key purpose of assessment and reporting is to support student learning by providing information to students and parents about student achievement and progress, and to indicate areas for further development.
A range of assessment tools are used by our teachers to determine a child's progress throughout the year. These may include observations, anecdotal records, student work samples, pen and paper tests and checklists.
A component of our assessment procedures each year are Baseline Assessment Program (BASE) assessment for Kindergarten children early in Term 1 and then again in Term 4. Students in Year 3 and Year 5 participate in the National Assessment Program in Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) early in Term 2.
Early in Term 1 each year 'Getting to Know You' interviews provide the opportunity for parents and carers to share information about their child with the class teacher. Written reports are sent home at the conclusion of Semester 1 and Semester 2 each year.
All students receive a school based report which includes information about student progress academically and socially. Students from years 1 - 6 also receive an A-E report.
Parent/Teacher Interviews are also conducted at these times.
