Assessment and Reporting to Parents
Macgregor uses a range of formal reporting strategies, all of which reflect student achievement in relation to the curriculum, both academic and non-academic, as well as their social development. These include:
- Mid semester progress report (term 1)
- End of semester summative reports. (terms 2 and 4)
- End of semester A-E grade for each subject (except preschool and kindergarten)
- Portfolios of annotated work samples. (terms 2 and 4)
- Learning Journeys (term 3)
- Parent-teacher interviews (following semester one reports). (start of term 3)
In addition to these school based reports, students in kindergarten will receive Performance Indicators in Primary School (PIPS) testing results at the start and end of their kindergarten year. This will indicate growth in both reading and in numeracy throughout the year.
Students in years 3 and 5 will also participate in National Assessment and Performance in Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) testing, which provide parents and schools with a quick snap shot of how a student is performing against other students (their age) across Australia.
