Assessment policy annotated

  1. 1. “Personalised Program” is the term given within National Curriculum documentation
  2. 2. We cannot assign percentages for a grade that is determined holistically. Suggestion: We will move away from a model in which grades are 'calculated' towards a model in which grades are pictures that form from multiple pieces of evidence.
  3. 3. Given that student grades are assigned holistically on basis of any evidence, if students later show that they can achieve the outcomes of an assessment task (regardless of plagiarism) we are required to acknowledge it. Suggestion: We need to find other ways of acknowledging student effort than solely in their grade.
  4. 4. We have no scope to penalise students for late work against the achievement standard. Suggestion: we must find other ways of acknowledging student effort than solely in their grade. The department supplied documentation of new grade descriptors for National Curriculum subjects. A indicates that a student has demonstrated excellent achievement of what is expected.
  5. 5. B indicates that a student has demonstrated high achievement of what is expected. C indicates that a student has demonstrated satisfactory achievement of what is expected. D indicates that a student has demonstrated partial achievement of what is expected. E indicates that a student has demonstrated limited achievement of what is expected. They will receive 'P' on their reports indicating that student received a Personalised Program based around a modified version of the Australian Curriculum. We no longer have scope to award a 'Consideration' grade – the student must be assessed A-E holistically based upon the evidence obtained of their achievement. We do have scope to alter the nature of that evidence.
  6. 6. It is likely that changes to the way grades are assigned in Maze that this will become prohibitively difficult to collate, however possibilities may exist within the Accelerus archive.
