Assessment and Reporting

Assessment is a continuous process of gathering evidence to determine what each student knows, understands, values, and can do. Our beliefs about assessment and reporting are outlined in the Assessment and Reporting policy document.

North Ainslie School has developed a range of authentic and targeted assessment strategies. We gather relevant objective data from across the school, as well as anecdotal information. Both formal and informal methods of assessment and reporting are used, including A-E, NAPLAN, portfolios, unit of inquiry books, midyear conferences and written end of year reports.

In the preschool and kindergarten years students are exempt from A-E reporting. However, in kindergarten the children are tested for literacy and numeracy competency at the beginning and end of the year and parents are given the Performance Indicators in Primary Schools (PIPS) test reports.
