Customising report elements

The format of student reports is a school based decision made in partnership with students, parents and the local community. Schools can customise elements in the report to suit the school’s and individual student’s needs.

Schools can decide how the following elements are represented:  

  • student progress along the learning continuum 
  • age-related expected level of achievement – English, Mathematics and Science
  •  individual expected level of achievement.

Schools can customise other elements including: 

  • progress towards individual learning goals and targets 
  • areas for improvement/future learning 
  • what the school will do to support the student’s learning 
  • what parents can do to support the student’s progress
  • attendance 
  • work habits assessment 
  • extra-curricular comments 
  • student comment 
  • parent comment/feedback.

Student Reporting VC Lookup Matrix 2017 (algorithm for developers)

Schools are required to use a five point scale or equivalent when reporting student achievement to parents.

The lookup matrix is useful for determining an A-E rating for English, Mathematics and Science as these curriculum areas are reported against age-related expected levels. The use of the lookup matrix is not effective for reporting a rating for other curriculum areas.
