English as an Additional Language (EAL) report cards

For reporting on the achievement of EAL students in the domain of English, teachers will need to choose to report on EAL rather than English. When reporting against the EAL standards, students are placed in one of three broad bands:

A Stages (Years Prep–2)
B Stages (Years 3–6)
S Stages (Years 7–10).

In all of the EAL stages students are assessed in the dimensions of Listening and speaking, Reading and Viewing, and Writing.

Teachers need to decide which EAL stage and sub-stage their student in, for each of the dimensions, for example:

  • a student Beginning Stage B2 Reading will score B2.1
  • a student Progressing through Stage B2 Reading will score B2.2
  • a student who has Achieved Stage B2 Reading will be at B2.3

Below are links to sample report cards for students at Bands B and S:
