Assessment and reporting

Our teachers use a variety of strategies to assess student learning.

Please refer to the Wyndham College Assessment Handbooks below and make sure you are planning and preparing for each task.


Teachers observe students' work in class and look closely at tasks throughout the year. They also formally assess a student's achievement based on the outcomes described in the syllabus of the subject.

As a parent or carer, you’ll receive a written report twice a year. It gives you a clear picture of your child’s achievements – what they know and can do.

In Years 7 to 10, we use the common grade scale in reporting. In Year 11, we use the Preliminary grade scale.

Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses are assessed on achievement of competencies.


Assessments

We provide detailed information to students about what we expect from them throughout the year and how their work will be assessed. Students have a number of formal assessments throughout their schooling.


Examinations  

Examinations occur each year for Year 11 and Year 12 respectively at Wyndham College. Check the calendar on Sentral to confirm dates each year.

During these times classes are suspended for that year group (with the exception of Technical and vocational education and training (TVET and accelerated courses).

Examinations take place in the Hall or Gym and students with disabilities provisions use the designated demountable rooms. Disability provisions needs to have been applied for and accepted before any examination period.

Students are to wear full school uniform to examinations. They must bring their student ID card and display it on their desk. An attendance slip is filled out by each student just prior to the commencement of each examination. Mobile phones are to be switched off and left in the student’s bag. Students should be discouraged from making trips to the toilet while the examination is in progress. Students must stay in the examination room for the full duration of the examination.
