Student reports are designed to follow a common format and are written with A,B,C,D and E grades. The A-E grades have the same meaning. They are used in the same way, across all schools, to report against the same state-wide standards.
Teachers assess students’ achievement according to “Progression Points” in each learning level for the Domains and Dimensions in the Victorian Essential Learning Standards (VELS). Teachers enter numerical scores which are collated by the reporting software to award an A-E score. The reports include teacher comments on what the student has achieved, areas for improvement and future learning, what the school will do to support the student in his/her learning and what you can do at home to help with your child’s progress. There is also a student comment section and provision for a parent comment.
Reports are sent home to parents twice a year, in June and December.
