I have been able to report clearly, accurately and respectfully to students and parents/carers about student achievement, making use of accurate and reliable records. Each semester I provide a learning area grade and a detailed comment about each students’ attitude, work ethic, progress and how they could improve in the future. I will also compare each students’ grade and comment with regards to the previous semester in order to gauge whether they are improving and if they aren’t, what can be implemented to facilitate improvement. Below is an example of a student report and comment from a year 7 Physical Education class. This student had excelled in all aspects of the program and received an ‘A’ grade for his efforts throughout the semester.
“Benjamin is an enthusiastic and capable student who has achieved an excellent result due to his consistent effort and participation in swimming basketball and AFL. He has demonstrated superior movement and technical skills that have combined with well with his adept knowledge of game-play rules and strategies. To improve his level of achievement he needs to recognise and be prepared to take on leadership opportunities when they become available in class. He should be very pleased with his level of achievement. Well done Benjamin.”
