Schools are required to report on the achievement of all students including those with disabilities.
Schools have the flexibility to determine the most appropriate way to report student achievement and progress to parents. When reporting the achievement and progress for students with a personalised learning and support plan, schools can:
- use the full student report format they have customised or components of it
- choose a different way of reporting progress that is better suited to the individual student’s needs.
For students with personalised learning and support planning, learning progress will be reported against curriculum area achievement standards and/or against documented learning expectations as identified in their plan. Teacher judgements will be based on evidence collected through the reporting period. Schools can report on a student’s progress anywhere on the learning continuum between Level A to Level 10.
Student reports should describe progress in curriculum areas and reflect the assessment criteria and goals indicated in the student's plan. Comments should include a clear outline of the action that will be taken to support improved learning outcomes.
