Student reports

Advice and resources to support schools report on the achievement and progress of students from Prep to Year 10.

Student reports provide meaningful information for teachers, students and their parents/carers on students' achievement and progress against clearly defined standards; this includes what has been learned and how well, where improvement is needed, and what should be done next.

Student reporting is both process and product.

  • Student reporting refers to the school's processes and approaches to reporting student achievement and progress, this includes the 'when', 'who' and 'how' of reporting. 
  • Student reports refers to the formal document, it is the 'what' of student reporting. Student reports comprise high-level, point-in-time judgements of achievement and progress that are determined through analysis of a range of assessment evidence.
