Assessment is an important part of learning. Teachers regularly assess students and provide them with feedback in a variety of ways. Teachers support and challenge students to reflect on their learning and seek ways to improve.
All courses are assessed against specific criteria or competencies. These indicate what students will be expected to know and do for the successful completion of a particular course. Students will be made aware of assessment protocols in each subject. More detail on assessment practices is available in the college Assessment Policy and Procedures document available on our webpage.
Students can view and discuss their current subject ratings with their teachers at any time.
Subject progress reports are sent home three times a year to parents and guardians or directly to independent students. This includes:
- An interim report in March which provides an early indication of progress in learning
- A midyear report which provides progress against subject criteria
- The third term report indicates ratings against subject criteria
After reports are sent home we invite all parents and guardians to parent-teacher interviews.
Attendance records are included with reports.
The final end of year assessments are sent from Tasmanian Assessment, Standards and Certification (TASC) and the TASC issue certificates recognising successful completion of courses.
Final VET course certificates will be sent from the Tasmanian Secondary College RTO.
