This learning event is right for you if you are keen to explore current and emerging practices around student reporting.
Student reporting is a requirement of all schools and, at a minimum, comprises two written reports with opportunities for parent/guardian and teacher meetings throughout the year. Schools are required to report student learning against the achievement standards of the curriculum. Many schools have moved beyond this traditional approach and have more frequent, less formal interactions between students, their parents/guardians and the school. Learn about the contemporary approaches to student reporting and identify your next practice.
Traditional approaches to reporting too often distract teachers from their classrooms, provide parents with information that is out-of-date and have little or no impact on student learning. It is time to revisit reporting to ensure it is useful for students, parents/guardians and their teachers.
This learning event supports creating best practice toward the following VRQA standard(s):
- Curriculum and Student Learning – Student learning outcomes
- Curriculum and Student Learning – Monitoring and reporting on students’ performance.
- an overview of the regulatory requirements for student reporting
- an exploration of grading from assessment data
- examples of contemporary practice in independent schools.
