Assessment is a continuous process of gathering evidence to determine what each student knows, understands, values and can do. It is used at the beginning, during and end of learning sequences to determine where each student is ‘at’ initially, their progress, and final judgements about the extent to which they have achieved the Essential Learning Achievements. Reporting is the process of communicating assessment of student development to students and parents to provide them with constructive feedback which assists understanding and growth. The emphasis will be on descriptive reporting as this allows the teacher to describe what has been learned in relation to learning opportunities.
