Understanding Reports

Primary

As of 2014, student reports became available for parents/carers to access online via Edumate. If you require a new copy of your child’s report, please log into the Carer Portal and download it at your convenience.

For your information, please find below four samples of the different formats that are used for Primary School reports:

Early Stage 1

Stage 1

Stage 2 and 3

Stage 2 and 3 (Advanced Learners)

Years 7 and 8

Due to Federal Government requirements, a student’s position within courses is shown by the use of quartiles. This is based on the cumulative assessment mark. The first quartile indicates the first 25%, the second quartile the next 25% and so on. The average for each subject recorded on the report is based on the group size shown for that subject.

In some subjects you may find percentages are rounded, so there may be a small variation between the actual total and the sum of all the tasks completed. Students on Life Skills Programs have reports with a different format and are outcomes based. If you have any concerns about comments or grades shown on a report, it is best that you deal with them immediately. We encourage you to ring a year adviser or class teacher to clarify information or seek assistance on any issue. Parent/Teacher nights are held regularly and parent attendance, whilst not compulsory, provides the opportunity for both parents and teachers to work out what is best for each individual child.

Years 9 and 10

For these reports, a cumulative assessment mark is calculated from the tasks done to date. A ranking is given based on the position within a course, based on the cumulative assessment mark. In some subjects you may find percentages are rounded, so there may be a small variation between the actual total and the sum of all the tasks completed. Mathematics rankings are based on the student’s pathway. Your child’s pathway is found in the Mathematics report comment field.

Years 11 and 12

A student report will list all the assessment tasks done that year – this will match with the student’s assessment booklet. All task marks are listed as a percentage. The weightings represent how much each task contributes towards the final yearly mark (i.e. a weighting of 40% will see that particular task contribute 40 marks towards the final mark). All weightings should match the assessment booklet descriptions. The ranking on some reports will indicate where each student ranks amongst the number of students attempting the course. This is based on the tasks completed to the date of the report.

In some subjects you may find percentages are rounded, so there may be a small variation between the actual total and the sum of all the tasks completed. The personal profile will give you a guide of student behaviour and indicate how well they are keeping up with the assigned work. Please note that Biblical Studies is an academic subject to further understanding of the Bible. Biblical Studies is not a NESA Preliminary or HSC subject, therefore, it is a school based assessment and will result in a class assessment mark for the semester.
