ASSESSMENT

“TELL ME AND I WILL FORGET,

 SHOW ME AND I WILL REMEMBER,

 INVOLVE ME AND I WILL UNDERSTAND”

The point made is that involvement is the key to achieving understanding. To ensure that you are fully prepared for assessment tasks you must ensure that you complete set readings, have your notes up to date, gather relevant information and ask questions if you are unsure of anything.

Assessment attempts to measure the amount of learning that has actually taken place.  Most measures of learning involve one or more of the following:

  • how much a student knows (facts)
  • how much a student understands (putting facts together meaningfully)
  • how capable a student is in applying her/his knowledge and understanding to specific problems.
Notes:
  • All achievement standards are internally assessed,  There is no external examination at the end of the year.  This means that you must be prepared to work hard all year to ensure that you reach your learning goals. 
  • Achieved, achieved with merit and achieved with excellence grades are offered in each achievement standard.
  • There is a significant practical component in the course.  It is expected that students will participate to a satisfactory level to reinforce the learning gained in theory-based lessons
  • Students who are not present for an assessment due to sickness, family trauma or a scheduled school activity will be given another opportunity to complete the assessment. 
  • In situations where several assessment opportunities are offered (eg. 3.4 Skill Performance) the student will be awarded the best grade achieved.
  • There will be an opportunity to re-do an assessment for each standard.
  • If assessment work is completed outside of class time, students are to ensure that the completed work is their own.
  • Once an assessment task is completed the student may be given a provisional grade which will be confirmed once internal moderation has taken place.  If a student is unhappy with the grade they have been awarded they should discuss this with the classroom teacher in the first instance.  If they are still unhappy they may ask the HOD for a review.  If the student still feels the awarded grade is unjust, they may appeal to the Principal’s Nominee.
  • Written assessments must be submitted for marking on or before the due date.  A doctor’s certificate will be required if you are unable to complete a practical assessment.  You will not do yourself any justice if you do not adequately prepare for assessments.  Plan your assignments ahead and do not leave things to a last minute rush.
