Teachers use a number of assessment techniques to determine the progress of each child. Each child's progress is compared to the expected levels of achievement as outlined in the Victorian Curriculum documents. Typical assessment techniques include: - observation, anecdotal records, checklists, tests, reports, written work, group and individual presentations and conferences. Assessment of the student's progress, as well as evaluation of teacher and program effectiveness are considered essential components of the teaching and learning process.
Reporting children's progress include Parent/Teacher Interviews, Written Reports, Assessments based on National Benchmarks and Learning Portfolios.
Children at St. Kilian's School use Learning Portfolios as part of their classroom routine. This portfolio is a major part of parent/teacher/ child communication, recording children's learning and keeping parents informed on a regular basis.
