Assessment and reporting

Our teachers use a variety of strategies to assess student learning.

Check-in assessment for Years 7, 8 and 9

In Week 7, Year 7, 8 and 9 students will participate in a reading and numeracy Check-in assessment.

The Check-in assessment is a NSW Department of Education online reading and numeracy assessment available to support schools to assess and monitor student learning.

The assessments can supplement existing school practices to identify how students are performing and to help teachers tailor their teaching more specifically to student needs.

  • The assessment will be scheduled for our students during Term 4 Week 7
  • Year 7: Monday November 15, periods 1 and 2
  • Year 8: Tuesday November 16, periods 1 and 2
  • Year 9: Wednesday November 17, periods 1 and 2

Students with disability may receive the same level of support during the assessment that they would normally receive in the classroom.

Students will require bring headphones or earbuds that plug into a computer to enable them to hear audio during the assessment. Earbuds used for mobile phones or other portable devices may be suitable for use during the assessment. The type of computer connection needed is a jack or USB. 

Teachers observe students' work in class and look closely at tasks throughout the year. They also formally assess a student's achievement based on the outcomes described in the syllabus of the subject.

As a parent or carer, you’ll receive a written report twice a year. It gives you a clear picture of your child’s achievements – what they know and can do.

In Years 7 to 10, we use the common grade scale in reporting. In Year 11, we use the Preliminary grade scale.

Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses are assessed on achievement of competencies.


We provide detailed information to students about what we expect from them throughout the year and how their work will be assessed. Students have a number of formal assessments throughout their schooling.
