Assessment at St Luke's

Assessing student learning is an integral part of teaching and learning. It improves learning and informs teaching. It is the process through which teachers identify, gather and interpret information about student achievement and learning in order to improve, enhance and plan for further learning.

Assessment of student learning takes place at different levels and for different purposes, including:

  • ongoing formative assessment within classrooms for the purposes of monitoring learning and providing feedback, for teachers to inform their teaching and for students to inform their learning
  • summative assessment for the purposes of twice-yearly reporting by schools to parents and carers on the progress and achievement of students

Reporting at St Luke's

Parents are invited to attend Student Progress Meetings twice per year (Term 1 & 3)
