Mid-year reports are intended to communicate with families about how students are progressing in their learning and identify areas for further development this year. Teachers have moderated evidence of student learning, assigned grades and written comments in the 8 learning areas of the Australian Curriculum. The general comment focusses more on the General Capabilities which encompass knowledge, skills, behaviours and dispositions towards learning.
Reports will go home on Friday.
A–E grades or word equivalents are used by teachers to report students’ achievement against the Australian Curriculum achievement standards. The grades describe a range of achievement from minimal to excellent. The following table describes each grade in words.
• An ‘A’ grade indicates that the student has shown a thorough knowledge and understanding of a topic and can apply that information in unfamiliar situations.
• Typically a ‘C’ grade means a student is achieving what is expected of them at that point in their learning. This is a considerable achievement because of the high expectations built in to the achievement standards.
• An ‘E’ grade means the student is just beginning to work towards the achievement standard.
